Suspect Arrested in Early Morning Homicide

December 10, 2004 00:00


On Friday, December 10, 2004, at 4:20 am, East Precinct officers responded to a reported stabbing at the “Scott Mountain By the Brook” apartment complex located in the 7800 block of Southeast Aspen Summit Drive. Officers arrived and discovered the body of 29-year-old Roger Vigdelio Rivera-Flores inside the apartment. Homicide Detectives were called to the scene and initiated an investigation. At 4:47 am, a second stabbing victim, identified as 25-year-old Hector Rene Fonesca, walked in to Portland Adventist Hospital. Fonesca also had what appeared to be stab wounds and transported to Emanuel Hospital for treatment.

During the subsequent criminal investigation, detectives determined that the two stabbing were related to the same incident. After receiving treatment, Fonesca was transported to the Detective Division and interviewed in connection with the death Rivera-Flores. Fonesca has now been charged with one count of Murder and will be lodged in the Justice Center Jail.

An autopsy to determine the cause of the victim’s death is scheduled for December 11, 2004.

This investigation is continuing.
