Homicide Detectives Investigate Homicide/Suicide

February 17, 2006 00:00


On February 16, 2006, at 5:33 p.m., Southeast Precinct officers discovered the bodies of 34-year-old Jennifer Crawford and 48-year-old Gary Crawford while conducting a “welfare check “ at a home in the 7600 block of Southeast Holgate Street. Jennifer Crawford and Gary Crawford are husband and wife. Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to conduct an investigation.

An autopsy, conducted by the Multnomah County Medical Examiner, concluded that Jennifer Crawford died of multiple gunshot wounds and Gary Crawford died of a single self-inflicted gunshot. Investigators believe that Gary Crawford shot Jennifer Crawford and then committed suicide. Investigators have yet to determine if there is a history of domestic violence between Jennifer and Gary Crawford.

Anyone with information is asked to call Mike Geiger at (503) 823-0768 or Detective Barry Renna at (503) 823-0255.

This investigation is continuing.
