Detectives developed suspect information in the case which included a description and first name. That information was shared with other law enforcement officers in the area and ultimately led detectives to Hunt. Members of the East County Major Crimes Team made significant contributions to this investigation by finding the place where Hunt, a transient, had been staying in an area near Troutdale known as 1000 Acres. There was an increased police presence recently at 1000 Arces following an unrelated homicide there.
Portland detectives obtained a warrant to search the campsite where Hunt was arrested and collected evidence. Hunt was alone at the time of his arrest. Detectives interviewed him and booked him into the Multnomah County Detention Center. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Barry Renna (503-823-0255) or Detective Mike Geiger (503-823-0768).
