Oregon authorities continue to investigate the apparent self-inflicted shooting death of a man who appeared on America’s Most Wanted.

Oregon State Patrolmen responded to  a report of a possible fugitive wanted from Indiana.  The man, identified as Philip Lloyd Ferguson, age 62, was also known as Roy Vernon Cox.  May 31st, authorities had attempted to contact him concerning a possible fraud warrant out of Indiana. Ferguson fled from Harney County Sherriffs after they had received a tip he might be in the area.  Ferguson was seen driving in a truck near Highway 78,  but before officers could apprehend him, his truck stopped some distance down the road.  Officers found Ferguson dead from a single gunshot wound to the head, and a rifle was on the seat next to him.

   FBI officers had occompanied the sherriffs officers, as Ferguson was wanted for a fraud charge in Indiana, and in 2004 had been featured on the national television show America’s Most Wanted.
