A homicide investigation is underway after a man was found deceased inside a Lents Neighborhood house.

On Friday, January 26, 2024 at 8:45a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a missing person, an adult male, in the 9300 block of Southeast Sun Crest Drive. After an extensive effort to locate him, officers developed information that the man may be inside the locked and secured home. They forced entry and searched the home to do a welfare check. Inside, they found the man deceased. Suspicious circumstances at the scene led officers to notify Homicide Unit detectives, who responded to the scene to investigate. For several hours, the investigation closed Southeast Sun Crest Drive between Southeast 92nd Avenue and Southeast Grandview Terrace. The on-scene investigation has wrapped up and roads are reopening. At this point, the case is considered a homicide investigation.

Official cause and manner of death, and the victim’s identity, will be confirmed by the medical examiner. His name will be released only after family has been notified.

No suspect or suspects have been located and no arrests have been made, however detectives do not believe there is an articulable danger to the community.

If anyone has information about this case, please contact Detective Brad Clifton at Brad.Clifton@police.portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0696 or Detective Calvin Goldring at Calvin.Goldring@police.portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0256. Please reference case number 24-19762.

Additional information will be released as appropriate.
