The reward fund has increased to $7,500 for information leading to the arrest of homicide suspect DIRCK WHITE. Clackamas County is offering $5,000 , and O'Malley Brothers Trucking is offering an additional $2,500.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is now working with the U.S. Marshals in the manhunt for White, who is believed to have murdered Clackamas County weighmaster Grady Waxenfelter. Murder victim and Clackamas County weighmaster Grady Waxenfelter had reportedly stopped Dirck White while White was driving a truck hauling wood for not having a license plate on the trailer.
At the time of the Feb. 6 murder, White was a delivery driver for O'Malley Brothers Trucking in Estacada. The owner and staff of O'Malley Brothers trucking have been very cooperative with investigators.
If you see Dirck White or the suspect vehicle -- a four-door 2004 Mercedes 320 bearing Washington license plate ANB7070 -- call 911 immediately. Do not approach, as White is still considered armed and dangerous.
Clackamas County detectives have been in contact with the Pierce County Sheriff's Office in Washington. Pierce County has an active warrant for White's arrest on a weapons charge. White is also a suspect and wanted for questioning for a sex crime regarding the rape of a child in Pierce County.
A donation fund has been set up by the Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation (CCOBF). CCPOBF has no overhead fees -- 100% of donations go directly to the Waxenfelter family to help cover expenses.
Donations can be made at any Clackamas County Federal Credit Union Branch or can be mailed to CCPOBF, P.O. Box 678, Clackamas, OR 97015 -- with donations made out to "CCPOBF" with "Grady Waxenfelter Fund" in the in the memo line.
