California Homicide Ends Mystery of Missing Portland ManSalem-News.com
The body was recently identified as being that of Ronald Lee Guy.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - In March 2005, the Portland Police Bureau took a missing person report for Ronald Lee Guy, a 42-year-old resident of Northeast Portland. Guy was reported missing by his girlfriend, and the circumstances of his disappearance were determined to be suspicious.
The case was jointly investigated by the Portland Police Bureau Missing Persons Unit and Homicide Detail detectives.
The initial investigation developed several leads based on evidence and numerous interviews. Guy's disappearance was determined to have likely been the result of homicide, although his body had not been located at that time.
In December 2009, the San Bernardino County California Sheriff's Department contacted the Portland Police Bureau, and advised that a body had been located in the high desert area within their jurisdiction. Detectives from both the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and the Portland Police Bureau began working jointly on the investigation.
The body was recently identified as being that of Ronald Lee Guy. Information regarding the discovery of the body was not released until the subject's identity could be confirmed.
Detectives are now asking for the public's assistance in this investigation. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective Ken Whattam, of the Portland Police Bureau Homicide Detail, at 503-823-0696, or Detective Ryan Ford, of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, at 1-909-387-3589.
