On the fourth anniversary of the homicide of a 36-year-old man in Northeast Portland, the Portland Police Bureau is asking for the public's help to solve the case. Brian Elton Spaulding's family and friends have privately raised $20,000 to offer as a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for his death.

On Monday, June 12, 2017, at 12:27 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to a residence in the 3500 block of Northeast 10th Avenue to conduct a death investigation. Officers and medical personnel arrived and determined that Brian was deceased. Based on observations of officers, Homicide Detectives responded to the scene. The Oregon State Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and determined that Spaulding was the victim of a shooting and ruled the death a homicide.

Brian's family is willing to speak to media about the case. Interested reporters can contact ppbpio@portlandoregon.gov to arrange an interview.

To be eligible for the family and friends reward, a person with information would need to contact Detective Rico Beniga at Rico.Beniga@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0457.
