News Release
UPDATE: Woman who died in early morning fire identified - 11/14/17

Just after 2:00 am, on November 8, 2017, one of our officers was on patrol when he saw a fire near the Abernethy Bridge, Washington St. and 16th St. The fire was from a homeless camp on the hillside. When our officer found the fire, it had already engulfed the camp and nearby trees. Clackamas Fire responded and extinguished the fire. After the fire was extinguished, fire personnel found a deceased female inside a shelter. The female has been identified as 45-year-old Rachael Renee Edwards. Clackamas Fire investigators, our detectives, and the Clackamas County Medical Examiner's Officer are investigating the death and cause of the fire. Ms. Edwards' family are mourning their loss in this tragedy and have requested privacy.
