Family of teen killed in Madison South assault speaks out
PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) – Following the Portland Police Bureau’s arrest of a suspect for a deadly Madison South assault, the victim’s family is speaking out on the painful loss.
According to PPB, East Precinct officers responded at 8:13 p.m. April 7 to an assault call at a hotel in the 3800 block of Northeast 82nd Avenue where they found 19-year-old Clyde K. Hunt. Officers said Hunt was in the parking lot suffering from serious head injuries from an apparent assault. He was taken to a local hospital but later died from his injuries.
Hunt’s family told FOX 12 he spent days on a ventilator before they made the difficult decision to take him off life support on April 23. Three days later, he died from his injuries.
“That was the hardest decision I think I’ve had to make,” said Hunt’s aunt Marti London. “I hope the kid get what he deserves because he took a lot away from us.”
On May 11, PPB Homicide Unit and Assault Unit Detectives obtained an investigation and arrest warrant for Jacauree T. Walker, 25, of Portland. The US Marshals Task Force subsequently located and arrested Walker in Portland.
Walker was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center for second-degree murder and two counts of first-degree assault. He was arraigned Thursday and pled not guilty.
