White had an active warrant for his arrest out of Pierce County, WA, on a weapons charge. He is also a suspect and wanted for questioning in a sex crime investigation involving the rape of a child in that same county.
White has an extensive criminal record, according to investigators.
Waxenfelter started working for Clackamas County in 1987 and became a senior mechanic in 1999. He had been a weighmaster since 2005.
FOX 12 has learned that Waxenfelter was also a church leader, a beloved brother, husband and father of three.
White was a delivery driver for O'Malley Brothers Trucking in Estacada. Deputies said the company is cooperating with investigators.
In fact, the O'Malley Brothers Trucking is offering a $2,500 reward, on top of the $5,000 reward from Clackamas County, for information leading to White's arrest.
"All of us at O'Malley Brothers Corporation are truly heartbroken over Thursday morning's tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's family, friends, co-workers and anyone involved," said O'Malley Brothers Trucking General Manager and Safety Coordinator Scott Keyser.
"We are assisting authorities in all ways possibly and hope that there is a swift and just resolution. Mr. Waxenfelter was a good man and was well respected in the local community."
White is believed to be in a four-door, 2004 Mercedes 320 with Washington license plate ANB7070. He is a Hispanic man, 6 feet tall and weighing 190 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
If you see him, call 911 immediately. Deputies said do not approach White, as he is considered armed and dangerous.
A donation fund has been set up by the Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation with 100 percent of donations going directly to the Waxenfelter family to help cover expenses.
Donations can be made at any Clackamas County Federal Credit Union Branch, or they can be sent to CCPOBF, P.O. Box 678, Clackamas, OR 97015, with donations made out to "CCPOBF" with "Grady Waxenfelter Fund" in the memo line.
