James "Jammers" Warrington, one of Sweet Home's most recognizable homeless residents, died Friday afternoon, Jan. 14.
Police Chief Jeff Lynn said the cause of death for Warrington, 43, was "unsure."
Inhabitants of the homeless encampment behind the old City Hall found Warrington in a tent, which was also occupied by another resident. Medics responded about 2:15 p.m. Friday.
"There was some concern that it could have been carbon monoxide poisoning, but that is undetermined," Lynn said. "We may never actually know the true cause of death. There are a lot of factors there."
