Reward Offered In 2015 Death

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help with a missing person and death investigation.

In March 2015, Tiffany Bettis (also known as Melinda Smith) was reported missing. At the time, she maintained a home in Fairview, Oregon and also lived in Roseburg, Oregon. She was reportedly last seen at the Quality Inn in Gresham around March 2, 2015.

On May 20, 2019, human skeletal remains were located in the area of Northeast 223rd Avenue and Marine Drive in Fairview. The Medical Examiner's Office determined that the remains were that of Tiffany Bettis. The cause and manner of death remain under investigation.

According to investigators, Tiffany left behind three children and a large family. Multiple people have reported to investigators that they do not believe Tiffany would have left behind her children willingly. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office is seeking any information about Tiffany Bettis, her disappearance, and her death. Foul play has not been ruled out in this case.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
