(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – BREAKING: Officials are looking into a possible link between the unsolved deaths of six women whose bodies were found scattered around Portland, Oregon, over the past half a year. This has raised concerns about the possibility of a serial killer operating in the area.
Over the last six months, the remains of these women were discovered within a 100-mile radius of each other. They were found alongside roads, within forests, or in isolated rural regions. KGW8, a local news outlet, brought forward this news.
At least five different law enforcement organizations are meticulously examining the circumstances surrounding these deaths. Officials have indicated that three of these organizations are actively collaborating to explore whether the cases are interrelated, possibly pointing to a single individual being responsible for these murders.
Ashley Real, 22, was the most recent victim. She was found dead in a densely forested region near Eagle Creek on May 7. Her last sighting was at a transit center in late March.
Joanna Speaks is another victim who disappeared around the same time as Ashley. Joanna’s body was located in a rural region of Clark County on April 8. The Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that she died due to severe injuries to her head and neck, indicating homicide. Joanna’s case is the only one in which the authorities have disclosed the cause of death so far.
Robyn Speaks, Joanna’s sister, voiced her concern to KGW8 regarding the growing number of women found dead in the area. “The grim reality is that an alarming number of women are ending up dead,” Robyn said. She went on to mention how her family has been actively discussing each case, scrutinizing the details, and communicating with the detectives about possible commonalities.
The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating one of the deaths, confirmed that they are looking into potential connections between the cases. They stated that they’re pursuing all leads, with numerous tips coming in from the public and comments on social media. They are also collaborating with other agencies to determine any links between the Clackamas County case and others in the region.
Likewise, the Sheriff’s Offices of Polk and Multnomah County have expressed that they are discussing these cases with other agencies.
Further, Bridget Webster’s remains were found on April 30 in Polk County. Just a week prior, the body of Charity Perry was discovered in Ainsworth State Park on April 24. Perry disappeared in early March.
Also, on April 24, an unidentified Native American woman was found dead near Interstate 205 and Southeast Flavel Street in Portland. Kristin Smith, 22, was found deceased on February 19 in a location less than three miles away. Smith had been missing since December 2022.
While the police are actively seeking connections between these tragic deaths, they have not released any information about potential suspects they might be considering.
