Crime Stoppers Of The Week

June 01, 2004 00:00


The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, needs your help in solving a homicide.

On December 31, 2003, at about 6:45 a.m., an Oregonian delivery person heard the sound of gunfire in the area of N. Michigan and N. Shaver. A few minutes later, she found 17-year-old Aaron Michael Prasad-King lying in the alley between N. Mason and N. Shaver, just west of N. Michigan. She called police.

According to detectives Prasad-King suffered multiple gunshot wounds and later died as a result. This occurred on a cold, otherwise quiet, Wednesday morning. Portland was in the middle of a winter storm and snow covered the ground.

Little is known about Prasad-King’s activities leading up to his death, or why he was in this alley at this particular time. Detectives would like to hear from anyone who has any information about this homicide or anybody who may have seen Prasad-King, or knows what he was doing, the night before he was killed. 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 may remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
