$20,000 Reward to Solve the 2017 Homicide of Brian Spaulding (Photo) - 06/12/18

The Portland Police Bureau is asking for the public's help to solve the 2017 homicide of Brian Spaulding.

Brian'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 the resident, 36-year-old Brian Elton Spaulding, was deceased. Based on observations at the scene, 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.

At this point in the investigation there is no suspect information on known reason why Spaulding would be killed.

To be eligible for the family and friends reward, a person with information would need to contact Detective Todd Gradwahl at 503-823-0991 or todd.gradwahl@portlandoregon.gov.

People who wish to remain anonymous may be eligible for a reward from Crime Stoppers, should their information lead to an arrest.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved homicide or other felony crime, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
