MEDFORD, Ore. -- If you have any information about the night William Huson died, his wife wants you to call police.
Medford Police began investigating Huson's death on Oct. 20 when his body was found near Vilas Road. The man died from a gunshot wound to the head and the death was ruled a homicide. Police say his taxi cab was found on Almond Street near Ninth.
Huson picked up his last fare at 10:41 p.m. Saturday, Oct.19, along Front Street between Sixth and Main streets. He was taking the rider to somewhere near Vilas Road.
Since the investigation began, police have received 106 tips. But now they want more and want help identifying three potential witnesses.
Police Chief Tim George said investigators have reviewed a lot of video from retail stores in the area. George made the statements during a press conference Tuesday.
Investigators located several witnesses through social media and have interviewed them about what they might have seen the night of Huson's death.
The chief defined suspicious activity as anything that was out of the ordinary -- the normal -- such as discarding clothing or handgun possession.
"Something out of the ordinary," he said. "Someone is acting odd."
To date, Medford Police have chased down 106 tips. The chief called the amount substantial but said the number was waning. They are hoping that Tuesday's press conference will result in more tips.
"We chase every tip," George said. "There is no such thing as bad information. Some information is better than others."
Police say something that may be insignificant -- or seems to be -- can be really important to investigators.
As for the suspect, police have a very basic description based on what one person has said. George didn't say it was incorrect, but police are not fixated on it, explaining that everyone who saw the suspect may have a different description. He used the example of someone saying a suspect has a ruddy complexion while someone else says the person is sunburned.
Police have followed up on potential leads regarding a suspect but they turned out to be negative.
"We've gotten our hopes up, down and in between," he said.
Susan Huson, William Huson's widow, spoke at the press conference.
She described her husband as a kind and hard working man who "didn't deserve to be taken away from his family in such a violent way."
"My heart breaks when I think the last time we spoke, I told him happy birthday and that I loved him," she said. "I was the last person to talk to him alive. I never dreamed that it would be the last time I would hear his voice. It hurts that someone would do this and not think about the amazing person he was."
Susan is begging for information that will bring the suspect to justice.
"Any information, no matter how minor," she said. "It could be the piece that solves this case -- this senseless crime."
A reward has been set up through CrimeStoppers and an anonymous donor. The total reward is $1,500.
