Update: Police say fall or suicide are most likely cause of death

Beaverton PoliceThis story has been updated.

The Beaverton Police Department investigated the discovery of a body on the sidewalk along Southwest Fifth Street early Wednesday morning.

The deceased adult was found directly under the Highway 217, and Officer Mike Rowe said evidence suggests the person either fell or intentionally jumped.

Officers initially also considered the possibility that there had been a hit and run, but the evidence didn't support that cause of death, Rowe said.

Fifth Street is closed during the investigation and expected to open soon.

The location is near Southwest Griffith Drive, a few blocks from police headquarters.
