PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — On June 12, 2017, Brian Spaulding didn’t show up for his job as a massage therapist. The 36-year-old was found dead inside his home in the 3500 block of NE 10th Avenue near Fremont.

Despite his family and friends offering a $20,000 reward on top of Crime Stoppers’ $2500 reward, police have received little information. No one has ever been arrested in connection with the case.
