The major crimes team, which included detectives from the Oregon State Police and the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, and personnel from the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory responded to the scene. The victim was identified as Ezelle and an autopsy performed by State Medical Examiner's Office determined that he died of a gunshot wound.
When the subsequent investigation led detectives to conclude that the homicide occurred in the 1500 block of Southeast 32nd Place in Portland, homicide detectives from the Portland Police Bureau joined the investigation. Aquino, who has been in custody on a parole violation since July 21, 2006, and Regalia, who was arrested on July 24, 2006, were charged this morning after detectives executed a search warrant at their apartment.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Bryan Steed at (503) 823-0395 or Detective Rich Austria at (503) 823-0449.
This investigation is continuing.
