Investigators have identified the body of a girl found in Washington Park on June 26 as a runaway from San Diego.
Mark Beebout is facing aggravated murder charges for the death of Mayra Sophia Cruz Rodriguez.
Portland police said she was visiting relatives in Vancouver when she was reported as a runaway June 15. She was also reported as a runaway in San Diego County prior to that.
Detectives distributed a sketch of Cruz to the public and authorities nationwide after her body was found, seeking help identifying her.
Beebout, a registered sex offender, was charged with killing her before she had been identified. He is also accused of killing Nikayla Powell. That woman's body was found in a southeast Portland apartment in July.
Police said Powell invited Beebout to stay with her after meeting him through a volunteer program that helps the homeless.
Detectives are asking for more details regarding the 15-year-old girl and Beebout. If you have any information, contact detectives at 503-823-0991 or 503-823-0457.
