On January 17, 2014, Pablo Perez-Angeles was murdered in his residence at the 1100 block of SE Alder Street in Hillsboro. At the time of this incident, Mr. Perez-Angeles was 55 years old and was a loving father, grandfather, friend, and member of the Hillsboro community. Although there are persons of interest in this investigation, we believe additional witnesses have information about Mr. Perez-Angeles death. 

The billboard located at 21250 SW TV Hwy. Hillsboro reminds the public that Mr. Perez-Angeles is not forgotten, and we encourage anyone with information to come forward. The Hillsboro Police Department will continue to investigate the murder of Mr. Perez-Angeles and will follow up on any information provided by the community. 

We encourage anyone with information to contact the Hillsboro Police Department at 503-681-6190, or they can anonymously leave a tip at CrimeStoppers of Oregon.com. The HPD case number is 2014-529 and detective Megan Townsend is the lead detective.
