Body in freezer leads to arrest

‘A construction crew made a shocking discovery Wednesday, finding a corpse bound in duct tape stored inside a freezer at a south Medford home.

Medford detectives arrested 58-year-old Paul Henry Mahanna, who lives at the house on Fiona Lane. He was charged with first-degree abuse of corpse and remained lodged in the Jackson County Jail late Thursday on $500,000 bail.

“We may be adding some more charges against him,” Medford police Lt. Tim George said. “We consider this a very suspicious death.” [..]

“At first we thought it might be a game animal,” said Hanlin. “It was wrapped in so much duct tape that looked like a mummy.”‘
