PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After six years, the Portland Police Bureau and Crime Stoppers of Oregon are still asking for the public’s help in solving a double homicide that happened in the Hazelwood neighborhood.

On October 30, 2014, officers responded to a home in the 600 block of Northeast 114th Avenue on the report of a possible deceased person inside. When officers and medical personnel arrived, they found 65-year-old Jerry Ephrem and his wife, 65-year-old Helen, dead.

Authorities determined they died of homicidal violence.

Police said there is no suspect information and no known reason why anyone would want to hurt them.
