PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The Portland Police Bureau is asking for public tips in an unsolved murder of a 19-year-old woman two years ago in southeast Portland.

PPB said on Aug. 30, 2019, it responded to an apartment at Southeast 174th Avenue and Southeast Powell Boulevard. When officers arrived, they found 19-year-old Logan Nettleton who died in a shooting. A man was also seriously injured in the shooting and a young child was unharmed.

“It’s really hard to accept there’s a surviving eye witness and we don’t have more answers,” Mya Chamberlin, Nettleton’s mother said.

Chamberlin said she there hasn't been any leads on a suspect since the day her daughter died. She said she believes police are working as hard as they can to solve it.

She said she remembers her daughter's confident personality.

“Logan was larger than life and I know everybody who’s ever lost a loved one says that,” Chamberlin said. “She came to this life with an agenda and plans. I didn’t always know them or understand them but she was the strongest, most confident independent woman I’ve ever met.”

Chamberlin is asking any witnesses to come forward to contact police. The investigation into this case is continuing by detectives from the homicide unit. If anyone has information about this incident, please contact detective Rico Beniga at 503-823-0457 or Rico.Beniga@portlandoregon.gov or detective Anthony Merrill 503-823-4033 or Anthony.Merrill@portlandoregon.gov.
