EUGENE, Ore. --- Friends of 18-year-old Silas Strimple created a makeshift memorial at Washington Jefferson Park in Eugene.
They told KEZI 9 News that Strimple used to frequently skateboard at the park and was known for being a nice guy.
Strimple's name was spray-painted at the park and a picture of his student ID from Monroe High School could be seen there too.
Some of his friends said the last time they saw him he was unrecognizable, but they're shocked to hear of his passing.
According to the Travis County Sheriff's Office, Strimple's body was discovered on a conveyor belt at a recycling center in Austin, Texas on March 24th.
Police said there are no signs of foul play but that the death is considered suspicious.
A GoFundMe page dedicated to Strimple's family has already raised more than $5000.
