flowers left at murder scene
Portland, Oregon -A man and four year old girl have been found dead at a home in North Portland’s Portsmouth neighborhood. Police say they got a call from a woman last night saying they had to go to the home on North Houghton Street because an assault had occurred.
When they showed up, they found the bodies of a 34 year old man and the little girl. There have been no arrests in this case and police say they are not looking for any suspects. They say there is no reason to believe there is any danger to the public. The Oregon State Medical Examiner will do autopsies today to determine the cause of death.
Neighbors say a family of four lived at the house and that they were nice and quiet. They say the father traveled a lot. The older daughter and mother were not at home when police arrived. They have been accounted for. It’s not clear if the woman who called police is the mother.
A nurse who lives around the corner stopped by to leave flowers this morning. She says she would sometimes babysit the girls and was very distraught.
