Justice For Brian Spaulding

Many words can be used to describe Brian Spaulding. He was devoted, loving, and kind. He could be described as a protector, a teacher, and student. Others would say son, brother, and friend. The one word no one had expected to use would be… gone.

Brian Spaulding was taken from us on Monday, June 12th 2017 when he was found dead in his Northeast Portland home having been shot and killed.

The detectives working his case found no evidence of robbery and have very little to go off of. Neighbors interviewed stated that they had heard no gunshots and were perplexed and in disbelief.

Whether he was outside working on his motorcycle or building a forge, he always had a smile and a wave for passers-by. His dedication to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and putting himself through school to be a massage therapist came through in his day-to-day life, and brought out similar qualities in those around him.

We love him and miss him, and he should be with us still.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a reward of $2,500.00 for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator(s).

We can do better.

Those who were close to him and love him are announcing the
Justice for Brian Spaulding’ fund.

Join us in raising enough money to entice someone to speak out and say what they know/saw, to find, arrest, and convict the person(s) responsible.
