Clackamas County emergency dispatchers said deputies responded to the scene in the 17000 block of Southeast Oatfield Road around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Deputies said they arrived to find a man dead inside the home. Investigators determined that he died of homicidal violence.

Investigators said Boettcher was last seen in a cream colored 2010 MINI Cooper with a black top and Oregon license plate number 399HJL.

Police records show Boettcher has an extensive criminal history dating back to the late 1980s. Criminal charges range from unauthorized use of a vehicle to attempted murder.

Boettcher is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him or the MINI Cooper, call 911 immediately.

Oatfield Road was closed between McNary Road and Jennings Avenue until about 2:30 p.m.
