As detectives continue to investigate her murder, court documents are shedding light on Jaime Larson's troubled, and sometimes violent, relationship with her boyfriend.
Last February, Larson and Tim Ruppel filed restraining orders against each other while they were both living in an apartment on Southwest Park Avenue.
It's the same apartment where police discovered Larson's body on Christmas Day.
In her restraining order, Larson accused Ruppel of assaulting her and drinking heavily.
"Tim started to hit me in the face, pull my hair out and throw me down causing bruises and cuts on my lip," Larson wrote in the report.
Ruppel's report told a different story. He claimed Larson attacked him while she was drunk.
"Punched me several times in the face, spit on me attempting to provoke me while she was under the influence of alcohol," he wrote.
However, a month after filing the restraining orders both Ruppel and Larson withdrew the complaints.
It appears the couple had broken up. In court documents Ruppel said they were no longer in contact.
Larson wrote, "I no longer believe Tim Ruppel is a threat to me. I live with my mom and he hasn't harassed me."
According to neighbors, Larson eventually moved back into the apartment on Southwest Park Avenue. She was seen living there recently. It's unclear if Ruppel was also living in the apartment with Larson.
FOX 12 also uncovered a third restraining order filed by Ruppel against Larson in 2009 when the couple was living in Milwaukie. That restraining order was also withdrawn the following month because Ruppel said they no longer had contact.
Portland police have not named Ruppel, or anyone, as a suspect in the murder.
FOX 12 was unable to reach Ruppel for comment Thursday.
Homicide detectives are asking anyone with information about Larson's death, or anyone who saw any suspicious activity near her apartment, to call Detective Molly Daul at 503-823-0991.
Investigators won't reveal how, or when, Larson was killed.
