Crime Stoppers Week of 6/23/08

June 23, 2008 00:00


On Tuesday, May 15, 2007, at 1:50 am, North Precinct officers were called to the area of North Lombard Street and North Greeley Avenue after a citizen saw a person on the ground behind a business. Officers arrived and discovered 50-year-old Robert Lee Borges unconscious with signs of severe trauma to his head. Because of the severity of the victim’s injuries, Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to conduct an investigation.

Borges later died from his injuries and Homicide Detectives are investigating his death as suspicious. Detectives are looking for anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious leading up to the time police were called to the scene. Borges apparently lived a transient lifestyle, frequenting North Portland stores and parks, and was well known to the area residents.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
