Police seek public's help in two cases

Police need your help locating convicted felon and wanted subject Daniel Jefferson Bigby, 40, whose criminal history in Oregon begins in 1988 with felony convictions for first-degree burglary and first-degree attempted burglary.

Also, police are still looking for information on the Dec. 10 murder of Roger Paul Johansen. Investigators suspect that people who might know about the circumstances leading up to Johansen's death at a Table Rock Road print shop are reticent either because they fear retribution from whoever killed him and set his shop ablaze or because they have checkered pasts themselves and don't want to risk landing in jail for previous infractions. Please call your tips into the Crime Stoppers tip line and refer to case No. MT-375.

Bigby has been incarcerated twice in the Oregon State Penitentiary, once in 1990 and again in 1991. Bigby has failed to comply with the terms of his parole and the Oregon State Board of Parole & Probation has issued a no-bail felony warrant.

The Medford Police Department also holds a felony warrant for failure to appear on the charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. There is also a felony warrant held by Klamath County Sheriff's Office for probation violation on the original charge of kidnapping, as well as a felony warrant held by Coos County Sheriff's Office for failure to appear on the charge of larceny.

Bigby is described as a white male adult, 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing approximately 230 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. He has tattoos on his chest, calves, hands and both arms. The picture shown here, taken March 2001 is the most recent photo available.

If you have information regarding the whereabouts of Daniel Jefferson Bigby, please contact Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon at 800-3-DETECT (800-333-8328) and refer to case number MT-374.

Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case or any unsolved criminal activity. Callers can remain anonymous. The reward is sponsored by Sonitrol of Eugene.
