Reward Offered In Kealiher Homicide

The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to determine who killed Sean Kealiher.

On Saturday October 12, 2019 at 12:14 a.m., Portland Police Central Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of gunshots heard in the area of Northeast 8th Avenue and Davis Street. Responding officers received additional information that a driver crashed a vehicle into a building.

When officers arrived they found a SUV crashed into the side of a commercial building and no one around. Officers also located evidence of gunfire into the crashed vehicle. A short time later, a report came in to 9-1-1 of an injured person at a local hospital who had been dropped off by friends in a private vehicle.

Officers responded to the hospital and learned that after the crash, 23-year-old Sean Kealiher suffered critical injuries. Friends of the victim placed him into a personal vehicle and transported him to the hospital, where medical staff were unsuccessful at life-saving measures.

The Multnomah County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and determined the cause of death was blunt force trauma and the manner of death was homicide.

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.
