MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Police said Monday they have no immediate suspects in the weekend slaying of a taxi cab driver in Medford.

Lt. Mike Budreau says evidence indicates that 58-year-old William Roy Huson of Talent was assaulted in the cab, robbed, and his body dumped in a field near the place his last fare wanted to go. Then the killer apparently drove the cab five miles to a parking lot and left it.

Police said Huson had been shot once in the head.

Valley Cab reported Huson missing at about 1 a.m. Sunday after picked up a fare outside a downtown Medford bar and then didn't call in.

Police found his body about seven hours later

Police say they hope someone outside the bar will remember who got into the cab.
