Oregon's Crime Stoppers offering $2,500 reward to solve 2017 homicide

The Portland Police Bureau and Crime Stoppers of Oregon are asking for the public’s help to solve a deadly shooting that occurred three years ago. On the night of September 7, 2017, the officers responded to the report of a shooting. The shooting occurred near Northwest 5th Avenue and Northwest Everett Street. They even say a crash that had occurred at the same intersection. The officers located a 40-year old Desmond Antonio Garrett. He was pronounced dead at the scene, also known as Munchie. He was sitting inside a white Mercury sedan. Later the Oregon State Medical Examiner determined that he died after the suffering a gunshot wound. Though there is a belief that after he was shot, he crashed into a power box and an occupied parked vehicle. This is all based on the information which was learned at the scene. Though the evidence was found later.

No suspect

There are no suspects found in the shooting and no one knows the motive. However, the Crime Stoppers of Oregon said that they will give reward. The reward is up to $2,500 in cash for the information. The information will be helpful for the officials in the arrest in any unsolved homicide or other felony crime, and tipsters can remain anonymous.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon

There is no such thing as a perfect crime. However, there are two main reasons why people with information reluctant to get involved: fear of retaliation is reluctant and apathy. Crime Stoppers of Oregon addresses both issues. If someone is contacting them, later they will not be facing any issues. A person remains totally anonymous. As people are never asked about their names and code number will be given to them. Since 1983, they are working with law enforcement and media to solve crimes.

However, they keep their lives in danger sometimes but they never fail to satisfy a person regarding their complaints. This organization is managed by an all-volunteer, non-paid Board of Directors. This is not a government program, thus they receive no government funding. It is a local nonprofit community organization funded entirely by tax-deductible donations. We hope that justice prevails.
