PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The killing of a federal defense attorney remains unsolved six years after Nancy Bergeson was found dead in her southwest Portland home.

Police responded to the 4100 block of Southwest Hamilton Street at 3 p.m. Nov. 24, 2009.

Bergeson's body was discovered and her death was initially believed to be due to natural causes. However, an autopsy on the 57-year-old woman determined that her death was from homicidal violence.

Investigators said they found signs Bergeson fought back against her attacker.

There is no suspect information and a motive has never been established for her death.

On Tuesday, six years after her death, police again highlighted a reward in this case. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward up to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest.

Tips can be submitted anonymously at 503-823-HELP or online at crimestoppersoforegon.com.
