Early Sunday morning, 29-year-old Shay Martinez, of Portland, arrived at Mt. Hood Medical Center with multiple traumatic injuries. Due to the severity of her injuries, she was quickly transported by ambulance to Emanuel Hospital for treatment. The East County Major Crimes Team was called out to investigate the circumstances which led to her injuries.
During the investigation, numerous interviews were conducted and on Sept. 11, 2017, 30-year-old Jose Funes of Gresham was arrested for Domestic Violence Assault in the First Degree. Funes is currently being held at the Multnomah County Detention Center on $250,000.00 bail. Investigators learned Martinez and Funes were involved in a relationship which resulted in the Domestic Violence designation of the charges.
Tuesday morning, Martinez died from her injuries. Investigators have provided the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office with that information for consideration of additional or updated charges against Funes.
Investigators would like to speak with anyone who was with Martinez or Funes on Sept. 9 or 10, 2017. If you have information which would assist investigators, please call 503-618-2719.
