Terrie Lee Walker, 45. Shot and killed Oct. 17. Washington County sheriff's detectives arrested her husband, Robert Wendell Walker, 52, on Nov. 4 in connection with her death.

Investigators discovered that the intense man with no apparent political ties had been given a pardon by President Reagan in 1981 for an attempted bank robbery and by Oregon Gov. Bob Straub in 1977 for two shoplifting convictions. Robert Walker was convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison .

Sengsadaphet "Seng" Phongsavanh, 29. Three Beaverton police officers shot and killed Phongsavanh on July 1 in the parking lot of the Overlook Apartments on Southwest Osprey Drive in Beaverton after he charged them wielding a 14-inch butcher knife.

Lorenzo "Loni Kai" Igisaiar Okaruru, 28. On Aug. 26, a 16-year-old girl found the body of Lorenzo Igisaiar Okaru, a transgender woman also known as Loni Kai, in knee-high grass about 100 yards from her home in the 27000 block of Southwest Farmington Road, about four miles south of Hillsboro. Detectives said Okaruru, a native of Saipan who lived in Aloha, was savagely beaten around the head and face with a blunt instrument at a different location and dumped in the field. Detectives said Okaruru probably was killed as a hate crime. The case remains unsolved. The sheriff's office is offering a $4,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Harlee Rena Holland, 24. Her body was found Aug. 27 in the bathtub of her apartment at the Tualatin Meadows complex off Southwest 90th Avenue in Tualatin. An autopsy revealed she died from strangulation. Authorities say that Ali Mohamad Mattar, 27, a recent acquaintance, told friends and family that he "had things to do" and was going to meet friends from out-of-town the night of Aug. 26, 2001. Instead, he went to Holland's apartment and raped and killed her. The corpse's fingers had also been severed. To avoid the death penalty, Mattar pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and corpse abuse. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Eugene Kirk Lockwood. 58. Washington County sheriff's Sgt. Gil Gregg shot and killed Lockwood Oct. 31 after a 6-1/2-hour standoff at the Aloha Station Tavern on Southwest 185th Avenue in Aloha. Lockwood died at the scene from a single gunshot wound to the head after he pointed a handgun at Washington County sheriff's Sgt. Gil Gregg, who fired one shot from his .308-caliber rifle. The Washington County district attorney's office ruled that the shooting was justified. Lockwood and his wife co-owned the Aloha Station for 20 years.
Rodney Ray Layman, 31. Fatally shot Dec. 1 after a short car chase led to an apartment complex parking lot in the 13500 block of Southwest Jenkins Road in Beaverton, where Layman lived and worked. Police and eyewitnesses, including Layman's mother and stepbrother, gave conflicting accounts of the shooting. Witnesses said Layman held both hands in the air and took only four steps toward Deputy Shawn Blalack when he was shot. But Blalack told detectives that he feared for his life as Layman, 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, walked at him aggressively with his left hand at his side, where he might be able to grab a weapon. Layman ignored his orders to stop and put his hands in the air, the deputy said. An autopsy showed Layman's blood-alcohol level was 0.17, more than twice the legal limit. A Washington County grand jury declined to indict the deputy, and a federal lawsuit was dismissed in October 2003. Layman was a painter for a construction company for about the 10 years.
Felipe Jaime Perez Texta, 25. Perez, of Tualatin, was shot four times Jan. 2 in a second-floor hallway of a Hillsboro apartment complex in the 700 block of Northwest Fieldcrest Way. Detectives arrested Che Allan Loe, 31, two days after Perez's death while making a child welfare check at a home in the 200 block of Southeast 15th Avenue in Hillsboro. According to police reports, Loe was jealous of Perez's friendship with Loe's girlfriend. At trial, Loe claimed self-defense and testified that he emptied a .32-caliber semiautomatic handgun at Perez. Four bullets hit Perez: one in the face, one in the chest and two in the buttocks. Loe was convicted of first-degree manslaughter and sentenced to 15 years, 10 months in prison.

Steven James Jirschele, 49. Shot at least four times June 20 in a home he shared with his girlfriend, Susan D. Corbett. Washington County sheriff's deputies found Jirschele's body about 6:30 a.m. in a bedroom of the one-story home in the 19300 block of Southwest Southview Street in Aloha. Corbett, 35, admitted to sheriff's deputies that she shot and killed her boyfriend after using heroin and cocaine. Jirschele was a custodian at Aloha High School at the time of his death. Corbett had worked at Conestoga Middle School until she was fired in September 2001 after she rammed the back of a school bus full of students with a district vehicle and failed a drug test. Evidence showed Corbett shot Jirschele twice in the chest, once in the back and the final one with the gun muzzle pressed against the victim's forehead just above his right eye. She was convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Susan D. Corbett
Juan Oswaldo Aguilar, 19. Shot as many as 10 times July 6 in front of the Townhouse Motel at 432 S.E. Baseline St. in Hillsboro. Armando Chavez Ortiz, 18, of Hillsboro told police he shot Aguilar, also of Hillsboro, with a .22-caliber rifle about 2 a.m. after the men argued about a girlfriend. Chavez told investigators he fired the shots after Aguilar threatened him with a knife. Investigators did not find a knife at the scene. Chavez and Aguilar were unemployed and were associated with the 13th Street gang, police said. Chavez told jurors he shot his friend in self-defense after Aguilar lunged at him with screwdrivers in a methamphetamine-fueled rage. He was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Later, a judge added three more years for series of crimes committed by Chavez in 2001 and 2002, including second-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse. Authorities said Chavez was living in the United States illegally and will be deported to Mexico after serving the 13 years.

Danny Leon Flannigan, 38, of Hillsboro was shot by a Washington County Sheriff's Office sniper after a two-hour standoff July 24 outside the Brookwood Firs apartments at 140 N.E. 47th Ave. in Hillsboro. The standoff began about 7 p.m. when Flannigan bumped his car into a car driven by his 17-year-old estranged girlfriend. Police surrounded Flannigan, and a standoff ensued. About 9 p.m., Flannigan walked swiftly toward a group of police officers. Sgt. Gil MacGregor shot him once from about 265 feet away. Flannigan had a history of run-ins with the law, depression and attention deficit/hyperactive disorder, according to police reports. Prosecutors did not pursue criminal charges against the officer. Flannigan graduated from Aloha High School and served in the Army.

Jasmine Marie Kirkland, 4 months. Died Sept. 16 as she slept in bed with her mother, Tonia Marie Holliday, 28, at their apartment on Southwest 91st Avenue in Tigard. Holliday had been drinking before she rolled against the child, who died of asphyxiation. A Washington County grand jury indicted Kirkland on one count of manslaughter. She was acquitted by Washington County Circuit Judge Gayle A. Nachtigal, who criticized the woman as a bad mother who only cared about her next drink but not guilty of the charge against her.
Tonia Marie Holliday
Michael Ray Kinloch, 39. The Gladstone man was stabbed with a pair of scissors, tied up with speaker wire and taken to Hillsboro from his girlfriend's house in Gladstone on Sept. 29. At a house in the 200 block of Northeast Lenox Street, Kinloch was shot twice. His body was loaded into a car and dumped on a logging road about 15 miles from Toutle, Wash., and set afire. A passer-by found Kinloch's body Oct. 3. Police linked the murder to Washington County in early 2003 and charged four people with aggravated murder: Janet Sue Cummings, Kinloch's girlfriend; Shawn Michael Coble of Hillsboro; David Kenneth Hale of Portland; and Adrian Rome Gargan of Hillsboro. The four knew one another through methamphetamine sales and use. Coble and Gargan, who were living in the Hillsboro home, told police they killed Kinloch and pleaded guilty to aggravated murder. Cummings told friends she wanted Kinloch killed because he allegedly was stealing from her and was a police snitch. She pleaded no contest to first-degree manslaughter. Hale pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter for helping Coble and Gargan kidnap Kinloch from Cummings' house before they shot him. Hale and Cummings were sentenced to 10 years in prison. Coble was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and Gargan was sentenced to 38 years to life in prison. Gargan also was convicted of the Sept. 5, 2002, killing of Forrest Richard Paul, 26, who was shot in the head in his Southeast Portland duplex. The killing resulted from Gargan's fruitless effort to score meth and counterfeiting equipment.

Matthew Arron Engelhard, 21. The Hillsboro man was found about 9 p.m. Dec. 23 shot in the head and slumped over the wheel of his car at Southwest 173rd Avenue and Bany Road in Aloha. The 1990 Nissan Stanza was found in the middle of the intersection with the engine running and the headlights on. Detectives arrested Catrell Travis Rawls, 19, and Jaime Mauricio Ramirez Gonzalez, 20. Ramirez pleaded guilty to aggravated murder for shooting Engelhard in the back of the head as the three men sat in Engelhard's car. Ramirez had planned to rob his former friend, a marijuana dealer. After shooting him, the two men took about three pounds of marijuana from Engelhard's car and went through his wallet. Rawls admitted to supplying the 9 mm handgun used to kill Engelhard. He pleaded guilty to felony murder, but later tried to withdraw his plea. A judge sentenced Ramirez to 30 years to life in prison and sentenced Rawls to 25 years to life in prison.

Cameron D. Gassner, 21. Died Jan. 13 after sustaining dozens of stab wounds and cuts in his apartment in the 12500 block of Southwest North Dakota Street in Tigard. His body was found Jan. 15. Terrence "Terry" Lynn Tardy Jr., 22, a former Sunset High School star football player, beat Gassner to obtain the combination to his safe. Gassner received 30 or 40 wounds, including a punctured lung, severed tendons in his wrist and a cut to his neck that was so deep it went to the vertebrae. Tardy pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Terrence "Terry" Lynn Tardy Jr.
Sean Michael Busa, 32. Stabbed with scissors and beaten to death with a golf club and hockey stick on April 9 in his home in the 500 block of South Sixth Avenue in Cornelius. His 5-year-old son, Michael David Busa, was badly beaten and his throat slit, then left for dead. The boy lost nearly half his blood before a co-worker of his father's found him. Andrew Lawrence Gordon, a 17-year-old high school dropout who lived nearby, wanted to burglarize a house to help pay for his drug habit. Gordon, dressed in all black with gloves and a ski mask, spotted the satellite dish on the roof of Busa's house. There were no cars in the driveway, and Gordon thought nobody was home. Gordon slipped in through the unlocked sliding glass door and headed for the stereo and electronic games. But when he saw Busa asleep in bed, Gordon attacked the man. When the boy awoke and began screaming, Gordon used a pair of scissors to slit the boy's throat. The next afternoon, a co-worker stopped by to talk to Busa and found the bloody scene. Gordon pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, robbery, burglary, attempted aggravated murder and assault, and was sentenced to 55 years to life in prison.

Olivian Iris Nicole Goodrich, 3 months. Died May 30 in her family's Beavercreek Apartments home in the 12200 block of Southwest Center Street in Beaverton. Because she had been born with cytomegalovirus, which caused seizures, breathing problems and delayed development, no autopsy was performed, and the body was cremated. The baby's father, Darren Scott Goodrich, 40, was arrested July 9 on domestic assault charges in Salem, where the family had moved. Authorities say the man told police he held Olivian's nose and mouth closed for two minutes until she stopped breathing because he had trouble dealing with her medical condition. A Beaverton police investigator says neurologists told him the infant was a high risk to develop pneumonia, feeding disorders and respiratory problems but "was not expected to imminently die." Goodrich was sentenced to 10 years in prison for manslaughter. At his sentencing, Goodrich said he did the right thing by putting his 3-month-old terminally ill daughter out of her misery.

The remains of an adult male were found June 21, 2003 in a field in the 4800 block of Northeast Belknap Court in Hillsboro by a landscaper clearing blackberry bushes. Police found a human skull in the field, and then located a shallow grave with more remains nearby. In the grave, detectives found several pieces of identification for Jose Socorro Chavez, police reports show. Investigators believe the remains are Socorro, who would have been 48 at the time, according to police reports. The reports indicate that Socorro was murdered sometime between March 25, 2000 and June 21, 2003, and that he died of a blunt force injury to his head. The case remains unsolved. Socorro was homeless and had spent time at the Portland Rescue Mission, according to the reports.
Ronald Joseph Barrie, 22. The Beaverton man died July 17, more than a week after he was hit on the side of the head with a baseball bat during an altercation at the Somerset West apartments, 18205 N.W. Bronson Road, Bethany. Barrie, his stepbrother and a friend went to the apartments July 9 to confront Herbert Kaneholani for threatening Barrie's sister. Kaneholani told police he hit Barrie with the bat and punched another of the men in the face in self-defense. Kaneholani was convicted of second-degree manslaughter, first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon, and sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison.
Ronald Joseph Barrie
Ryshawn Lamar Bynum, 2. Pronounced dead July 31 at OHSU Hospital, a day after his father brought him limp and unresponsive to the emergency room. The boy had bruising on his brain caused by shaking or choking, a broken neck, ribs that were previously broken and whip marks on his legs, buttocks, back and chest. Issac Cortez Bynum, 27, of Beaverton told police he was giving his son a "helicopter ride" by swinging the boy by his ankle and wrist, lost his balance and dropped the toddler. Bynum was convicted of murder-by-abuse and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Issac Cortez Bynum
Connie Lynn Shotsky, 41. Died of blunt force trauma to the head. Her body was found Oct. 11 in the home she shared with her boyfriend, David Harold Larson, 65, in the 11000 block of Northwest McDaniel Road in Cedar Mill. A deputy state medical examiner testified during Larson's trial that Shotsky had been strangled and there were so many blows to her head and body that one injury could not be distinguished from another. Larson testified during his trial that he was trying to teach Shotsky a lesson about the evils of alcohol and that she accidentally hit herself in the face and smashed her head on the floor when he tried to pull her out of bed. Larson was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Jose Manuel Carvajal Ramirez, 35. Shot three times Jan. 9 in a parking lot at 301 S.W. Murray Blvd., just south of U.S. 26 in Cedar Hills. Daniel Lopez Romero, 29, shot Carvajal in a fight over drug money. The Washington County district attorney's office ruled the shooting self-defense and did not file charges against Lopez. Washington County sheriff's detectives tied Lopez to the Carvajal homicide after he was arrested on accusations of aggravated murder and kidnapping in a Portland shooting.

Ann Margo Corpuz, 30. Died Jan. 13 of multiple gunshot wounds as she and a friend sat in her Volkswagen Jetta at the take-out window of Mexicali Express, 12950 S.W. Canyon Road in Beaverton. Her estranged husband, Cornelleo "Leo" Sablan Corpuz, 27, followed her to the fast-food restaurant and shot her through the windshield. Ann Corpuz had a restraining order against her husband because he had allegedly abused and threatened her. The Corpuzes also were involved in a custody dispute over their 5-year-old son. Leo Corpuz testified at his trial that the shooting was self-defense. Corpuz fired three times into the windshield of his wife's car from about 6 feet away. He then moved around to the side and fired three more times at her through the open driver's window, inflicting the fatal shot to her heart. Corpuz said he just wanted to talk to his wife about their son, but he heard the car's engine revving when he walked in front of it so he reacted because he thought she was going to run over him. Several witnesses testified during the trial that the loud revving came after the first series of shots. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to 30 years to life in prison.

Warren Dudley Sercombe, 46. Killed by a Washington County sheriff's corporal Feb. 21 outside Sercombe's home in the 15100 block of Northwest Oakmont Loop. Cpl. David Lyle told investigators he fired at Sercombe when the man appeared to reach for a handgun lying on top of a car in the driveway. Neighbors in the Oak Hills subdivision in Cedar Mill called police when they heard explosions and saw Sercombe breaking windows in front of his house. The district attorney's office ruled the shooting justified. Investigators found detonating cord in Sercombe's boot and waistband.
Juan Francisco Duran Ferrusca, 19. The Northeast Portland man was shot May 2 at an apartment complex in the 11200 block of Southwest Greenburg Road in Tigard, in an argument over money and love. He was found dead in the back seat of a Honda that was abandoned a few minutes later at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Cedar Mill. Witnesses saw a man wipe down the car before walking away.

Gilberto Vasquez Ramos, 24. Stabbed nearly 20 times and bled to death early May 26 in Forest Grove's Lincoln Park after a fight with an acquaintance that stemmed from a feud. Police said Yovane Muro, 21, of Forest Grove was out for revenge after Vasquez assaulted him weeks earlier. Muro pleaded not guilty to felony murder and was sent to the state hospital because a Washington County judge found him not able to assist in his own defense. In January 2010, state hospital officials determined Muro was no longer a danger to himself or others and released him. Police picked him up in Salem after his release and he was charged again with Vasquez's killing.

The elder Mitchell didn't approve of his son's girlfriend and told both to leave. After the woman drove off, Jonathan Mitchell came back to the house with a .22-caliber Derringer, broke a window in the back door and shot his father at point-blank range through the window as the elder Mitchell tried to secure the door. Jonathan Mitchell pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 11-1/2 years in prison.

Ernest Wayne Duncan, 28. The Portland man was shot to death early Oct. 24 in the parking lot of a restaurant in the 2100 block of Northwest 185th Avenue in Hillsboro. Visith "Toby" Phandanouvong, 23, of Beaverton was convicted of the shooting. The men didn't know each other and were with separate groups of friends at the restaurant. As they were passing a friend of Duncan's outside about 2 a.m., one of the men with Phandanouvong made a comment that was taken as offensive. Duncan's group confronted the suspect's group in the parking lot. Words were exchanged and punches were thrown before Phandanouvong fired eight rounds from a semiautomatic handgun into the crowd. Duncan was hit once in the head. Phandanouvong fled to California and was arrested in January 2005. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Darvin Lopez Jovel, 18. The Aloha man was kidnapped, assaulted and killed in a revenge killing for his father's affair. Police say Petronilo Lopez Lopez and his son, Petronilo Lopez Minjarez, went to Lopez Jovel's home in November 2004 seeking vengeance on the family after discovering that the victim's father was having an affair with Lopez Lopez's wife. Lopez Lopez was believed to have fled to Mexico, where he cannot be extradited for a death penalty case. Lopez Minjarez was arrested. His defense attorneys argued that Lopez Minjarez's father led the violence against the teen and acted as the sole killer, leaving his son to hide in a McDonald's bathroom while he fatally shot the teen in the woods. The victim's blood found in the Lopez Minjarez's truck, home and on his clothes, and eyewitness testimony helped tie him to the murder, and the state argued that he was not left at a McDonald's but was present for the teen's fatal shooting. Lopez Minjarez was convicted of aggravated murder and sentenced to life in prison. In January 2010, the Oregon Court of Appeals reversed the conviction, saying the jury received instructions that inaccurately stated the law on accomplice liability. The Attorney General's office has asked the court to reconsider its decision. If the court affirms its reversal, the case will then go to the Supreme Court for review.

Jessie Mary Valero, 48. Stabbed to death in her apartment in the 800 block of Southeast 11th Avenue, Hillsboro. Her body was found March 17. Jorge Reyes Sanchez, 22, of Forest Grove, Jose Guadalupe Cazares Mendez, 32, of Hillsboro and Jose Lugardo-Madero, were charged with killing Valero while trying to conceal their identities in a robbery and burglary. Lugardo-Madero pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He will be deported after he finishes serving his sentence. Reyes-Sanchez and Cazares-Mendez were sentenced to life in prison without parole but their convictions were reversed by the Oregon Court of Appeals in early 2010, saying the trial court should have allowed hearsay evidence that pointed to a different killer. During the trial but outside the presence of the jury, the defendants presented testimony from four witnesses who recounted statements from a woman confessing to killing Valero. When questioned in court, she denied making the statements. The trial court said the witnesses' testimony was inadmissible because there was an "insufficient" amount of corroboration and the statements couldn't be trusted. But the appeals court said the witnesses had no motive to falsify their accounts and that the woman's statements to those witnesses while varied in detail were consistent with the essential facts of the case. On July 8, 2011, the Oregon Supreme Court agreed with the appellate court and ordered new trials for the men. (archive)

Gary R. Walker, 56, died of a single gunshot to the throat Oct. 1 in his home in the 3000 block of Brooke Street, Forest Grove, during what police said was a domestic dispute. His wife, Patricia Ann Walker, 55, gave different versions of the shooting, from a mercy shooting because her husband was ill to being a battered wife who grabbed a gun from the bedroom and it accidentally went off. Gary Walker ran the Forest Grove FedEx franchise after successfully running, and later selling, a pair of restaurants in Newport. Patricia Walker pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Lukus David Glenn, 18. Died Sept. 16 after being shot eight times by two Washington County sheriff's deputies outside his Tigard-area home. Glenn's family called 9-1-1 after the drunken teen, armed with a pocket knife, broke windows and made threats.

The district attorney's office upheld the deputies' actions and declined to send the case to a grand jury.
Lukus David Glenn
Neil Bruce Marcy, 45. The Forest Grove man was shot to death by officers from the Forest Grove and Cornelius police departments after he confronted them with a gun in each hand outside an apartment complex. Marcy had called 9-1-1 and said a shooting was about to take place. Officers went to Marcy's home in the College Place Apartments at 2607 21st Ave. and pleaded with him to come out peacefully. Authorities said Marcy repeatedly held a gun to his own head, randomly threatening to start shooting.
Marcy fired one round into his ceiling and told police, "You guys are gonna have to kill me. We're gonna see how good your target practice has been." Marcy asked whether the building had been evacuated of neighboring tenants, then left his apartment with a gun in each hand, pointed skyward and said he was ready to see his Lord. He lowered the firearms in the direction of the police and
was shot by Forest Grove Officers Matt Smith and Tom Siciliano, and Cornelius Officer Doug Schuetz. Two of the officers had helped Marcy find treatment in the past. The district attorney's office concluded the shooting was a suicide because Marcy wanted police to kill him.
Jordan Laird Case, 20. Died Oct. 21 after being shot in the head by a Washington County sheriff's deputy. A Tualatin woman called 9-1-1 after awakening to find Case in her apartment. She and her 8-year-old daughter had to fight him off before police arrived. When Case reached inside the deputy's patrol car and tried to grab a locked gun, he was fatally shot. The woman told police that Case had said he was high on psychedelic mushrooms. The district attorney's office ruled the shooting justified.

Dean Foster, Washington County Sheriff's deputies John Egg and Charlie Irving, plus sheriff's detective Chad Lotman. The district attorney's office determined the shooting was justified.
Constantino Cruz, 27. Died of gunshot wounds May 20 in his car outside his parents' Aloha home. Cruz had apparently beaten up gang rival Casimiro Blancas in a fistfight the day before.

Gerardo Pizano Arteaga, 45. The Hillsboro man was discovered early Sept. 24 behind Joe's Pastime Tavern, 359 E. Main St. Pizano Arteaga died later that day at Legacy Emanuel Hospital & Health Center in Portland. An autopsy showed his skull had been crushed with more force than could be sustained in a fist fight or by someone wielding a club. Police said it was unlikely he died from an assault and was probably accidental, but the case was still listed as a homicide. Police say it is possible a car or truck or heavy movable object struck Pizano Arteaga. Detectives determined Pizano Arteaga left a friend's home in Hillsboro about 9:30 p.m. Sept. 23. Police were told he was drunk when he left. Police believe Pizano Arteaga may have been on his way to the tavern when he was hurt.
Gerardo Pizano Arteaga

Buxton hit Bogdanov in the head with a flashlight, gagged her with her own sock and taped her mouth shut, tied her nude body to a portable massage table and sexually assaulted her before slitting her throat. Buxton's guilty plea exempted him from the death penalty but it earned him a life sentence without parole.
Mikkal Kane Buxton
Steve G. Stanturf, 37. Died Nov. 24 when he was shot by two Washington County sheriff's deputies outside his Aloha home. The district attorney's office determined the shooting was justified because Stanturf fired three shots from his front porch at deputies responding to a report that a man was drunk, armed and suicidal after a domestic disturbance. The deputies -- Cpl. Steve Schuster and Cpl. Mark Trost -- returned fire, and Stanturf was hit by three of the four shots. Stanturf lived in Springfield before moving to Aloha in 2004, and was a contractor for a construction company.
Kimberly Lynn Osbrink, 24. Died Dec. 17 after being accidentally shot in her Tualatin home by her husband, Ryan Osbrink, while he was practicing drawing his .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol from a holster. A decorated former Marine, Ryan Osbrink was to have started work as a Clark County sheriff's deputy that week but abandoned that plan after the shooting. Washington County authorities ruled the shooting and accident and did not file charges against Osbrink.
Kimberly Lynn Osbrink
Shane Miguel Grundmeyer, 39. Fatally shot by two deputies outside his Cooper Mountain house shortly after 5:30 p.m. Deputies were waiting for Grundmeyer on Southwest 175th Avenue, near a gravel road leading to his house, when he came by "at a pretty high rate of speed." About 15 minutes earlier, a Beaverton police officer tried to stop Grundmeyer's car because the man had an outstanding felony warrant on various identity theft and methamphetamine charges. Grundmeyer stopped long enough to drop off his daughter and her friend, both 14, then took off in his car. The Beaverton officer stayed with the girls and radioed dispatchers. The deputies who went to wait near Grundmeyer's house knew about the outstanding warrant and that an informant had told Beaverton police that Grundmeyer "was armed and was not going to go peacefully," the SO said. When Grundmeyer didn't stop for deputies on Southwest 175th Avenue, they followed him to Shadypeak Lane and boxed him in with two patrol cars. Grundmeyer rammed both patrol cars more than once, the SO said. Sitting in one of the patrol cars was a 17-year-old girl on a ride-along for a school project. At some point, the deputies got out of the cars with their guns drawn and ordered Grundmeyer to stop. When he didn't, they opened fire. The shooting was ruled justifiable by the Washington County District Attorney's Office.

Juana Rosales-Garcia, 40. Killed by her boyfriend, Delfino Hurtado- Navarrete, after telling him that she was leaving him. Hurtado- Navarrete took Rosales-Garcia for a ride in March after she told him they needed to talk. They had lived together for eight years, and he'd helped her raise her two sons. When she told him she wanted to break up; he beat Rosales-Garcia unconscious, slashed her throat with a utility knife, then beat her again. He drove to a wooded embankment outside North Plains, dumped her half-clothed body and pretended for a month that he didn't know where she was. He went on the radio and television, pleading for leads. He confessed only after detectives confronted him with cell-phone records that didn't match his alibi. He pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Nabintu Kelekele Kalamba, 49. Beaten to death with a hammer by her husband. At about 1 a.m. on March 16, the couple's 24-year-old daughter called police to the Beaverton home in the 6100 block of Southwest King Boulevard saying her dad had killed her mom with a hammer. Police found Namegabe Kelekele Mushegero, 51, standing in front of the residence with what appeared to be blood on his hands and clothing. A hammer was found just inside the residence's front door, covered with blood. An officer and medical examiner found Kalamba's body lying face down in the apartment's upstairs bedroom. Blood was spattered throughout the bedroom, and she had two visible and significant injuries to her head. Mushegero confessed he hit his wife because she was going to leave him. At trial, he testified that he became enraged when she taunted his manhood. Mushegero was convicted of murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Maya Gramajo-Calderon, 2 months. The baby was unconscious and not breathing when paramedics responded to the family home in the 20500 block of Southwest Anna Court on May 26. She was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with closed-head injuries, a term used to describe a specific kind of traumatic brain injury. Doctors had the girl on life support in an effort to save her, but she died. The girl's father, Eber Eli Gramajo, was caring for the girl while her mother was at work. Frustrated by Maya's fussiness, Gramajo bashed her head against a hard surface --probably an oak armchair or a table, knocking her unconscious. Gramajo pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Kylie Gumm, 6. The bodies of Tyler Gumm and his sister, Kylie Gumm, 6, were found May 29 at Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve, along with that of their father, James Gumm, 45, all of Hillsboro. Police said James Gumm was unemployed and under stress when he shot and killed his two adopted children with a 9 mm handgun and then shot himself. A hiker found the bodies about 1 p.m. along the Otter Marsh Loop trail about a mile from the closest parking area. Neighbors said they heard shots about 11 a.m. Gumm had no criminal record.

Heather Megan Snively, 21. The Tigard woman's body was found in the crawl space of a Cedar Hills home on June 5, her womb cut open and her unborn son, to be named John Stephen, removed. Snively had gone on an online classified network looking for baby clothes and other items. She met Korena Elaine Roberts, who agreed to give Snively some baby clothes. Roberts was faking a pregnancy, telling her boyfriend and family she was expecting twins. Roberts brought Snively to the Cedar Hills home where she lived with her boyfriend and her two children. She killed Snively in the bathroom, covered her in carpet and hid the body in a crawl space beneath the house. Roberts' boyfriend came home to find Roberts in the bathtub with the water running, crying uncontrollably and holding the baby boy. Paramedics drove Roberts and the baby to a hospital, where doctors pronounced the baby dead. Hospital staff called police, who arrested Roberts and found Snively in Roberts' home that night. An autopsy showed Snively suffered 15 to 30 blows, mostly to the back of her head, cuts to her right breast and abdomen and bite marks on her right arm. The medical examiner determined the head injuries probably knocked Snively unconscious, but it was the incision to her abdomen and loss of blood that killed her. Roberts pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The body of Heather Snively, 21, was found in the crawl space of a Cedar Hills home on June 5, her womb cut open and her unborn son, to be named John Stephen, removed. Snively had gone on an online classified network looking for baby clothes and other items. She met Korena Elaine Roberts, who agreed to give Snively some baby clothes. Roberts was faking a pregnancy, telling her boyfriend and family she was expecting twins. Roberts brought Snively to the Cedar Hills home where she lived with her boyfriend and her two children. She killed Snively in the bathroom, covered her in carpet and hid the body in a crawl space beneath the house. Roberts' boyfriend came home to find Roberts in the bathtub with the water running, crying uncontrollably and holding the baby boy. Paramedics drove Roberts and the baby to a hospital, where doctors pronounced the baby dead. Hospital staff called police, who arrested Roberts and found Snively in Roberts' home that night. An autopsy showed Snively suffered 15 to 30 blows, mostly to the back of her head, cuts to her right breast and abdomen and bite marks on her right arm. The medical examiner determined the head injuries probably knocked Snively unconscious, but it was the incision to her abdomen and loss of blood that killed her. Roberts pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Alexander Hernandez-Apale, 18. The teen was fatally stabbed on Aug. 31 by three men who mistook him for a rival gang member. Duane Everett Corbett, 24; Maciel Munoz, 19; and Nicholas Josue Sias, 24, were arrested and each charged with one count of murder about two weeks after the attack. Hernandez- Apale and a friend, Jesus Trejo, were walking home on Southwest Hall Boulevard about 11:30 p.m. when a car pulled up and three men, one holding a large knife, got out and began a chase that turned deadly. Prosecutors said the three men were equally responsible for the killing, regardless of who inflicted seven stab wounds. Attorneys for the men admitted they all played a role in the assault but said they didn't intend for Hernandez- Apale to die. Police said the men belong to a local Sureno gang, the assassinos, which wars with another Sureno subset, Tepa. Hernandez- Apale had friends in Tepa, but he never belonged to a gang. Hernandez- Apale was stabbed three times in the right side of his chest, puncturing a lung, and twice in his right arm and twice in his back. State medical examiner Karen Gunson testified that when the teen arrived at the hospital about 16 minutes later, he had lost nearly all the blood in his body. He died of massive blood loss the next day. Corbett, Munoz and Sias were each convicted of aggravated murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Eduardo Andrade-Alcanter, 19. The teen's body was found Oct. 9 in the Tualatin River, one week after he was stabbed to death at Steamboat Park in Cornelius. Police accused Alejandro Aguilar-Mandujano, 20, and Juan Carlos Negrete-Vasquez, 13, both of Hillsboro, of the killing in the course of a robbery. Police say Aguilar-Mandujano lured Andrade-Alcanter to the park where he and Negrete-Vasquez fatally beat and stabbed the man, then dumped his body in the river. Police say they stole $3,000 that Andrade-Alcanter had taken out of the bank to buy a car. On March 7, 2011, Aguilar-Mandujano admitted to the killing and was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Negrete-Vasquez is facing a September 2011 murder trial.
Eluard Corzo-Bernal, 21. Died of a heroin overdose on Oct. 9 after it was injected into him by a friend. After Corzo- Bernal was sent home drunk from his job, Kaleb Ray Abraham injected him with the opiate in their Aloha apartment. Corzo-Bernal fell over, unconscious. Hours passed, and Corzo-Bernal, 21, didn't wake up. Abraham slapped his face and tried CPR to revive him, but neither worked. At 3 a.m., about seven hours after Corzo-Bernal got the heroin, another roommate noticed brown foam was oozing from his mouth. He and Abraham took Corzo-Bernal to the hospital where doctors said Corzo-Bernal's brain had been deprived of oxygen for at least 25 minutes. Corzo-Bernal was on life support for a time, then died of the heroin overdose. Police caught Abraham months later when he ran a red light and collided with another car, injuring the two people in it. Police found loaded syringes and heroin in his car. Abraham pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and was sentenced to 4 years in prison without the possibility of early release.

Daniel Joseph Barga, 24. The Cornelius man died April 10 in police custody from "excited delirium" due to the toxic effects of psilocybin, or hallucinogenic mushrooms, according to the state medical examiner. A homeowner told police that a partially clothed man had confronted him outside his Cornelius home in the 3000 block of North Irvine Street and was behaving erratically, threatening violence. Cornelius Officer Mark Jansen found Barga in the backyard covered with blood and refusing to cooperate, police said. Jansen used a Taser to try to subdue Barga, but the stun-gun had no effect. Jansen tried to wrestle Barga to the ground, but Barga reportedly ran. Forest Grove Sgt. Dean Foster and Officer Scott King joined the chase, and the officers used Tasers and pepper spray on Barga, who kept struggling. Barga then stopped breathing while being taken into custody.

Ryan Lee Johnson, 22. Fatally shot in the parking lot of an Aloha grocery store at about 3:20 p.m. on Jan. 26. Following a short chase, police arrested Jeffrey Brian Johnson, 52.
