Update: 10/27/12 GRESHAM, OR — Whitney Heichel Suspect Admits To Downloading Child Porn And Hiding Two Handguns Before Arrest: 

Indicted for the murder of 21-year-old Barista Whitney Heichel, Oregon man Jonathan Holt told police how he had desperately tried to hide evidence and confessed to downloading child pornography, according to newly released court documents.

Holt left a trail of evidence as police followed him in the hours before his arrest.

Jonathan Holt, 25, discarded one handgun in bushes at his north Portland workplace on Oct. 19, according to documents released Friday.

He tossed another handgun in the grass outside the suburban Gresham Police Department, just before confessing to sexually abusing and killing Heichel.

Heichel also admitted to breaking into Heichel’s home to steal an iPhone before abducting her and to downloading child pornography on his home computer.

Holt was arrested during that interview.

During a brief court appearance Friday, Holt, was indicted on charges of kidnap, robbery and sodomy. He was earlier charged with aggravated murder.

Lawyer Conor Thomas Huseby, appointed to represent Holt, declined to answer questions.

Hundreds of people from around the Portland area gathered Friday at a Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall in Gresham for a public memorial for Heichel.

Her husband, Clint Heichel, spoke to reporters outside the hall, saying the family wanted to ‘give the community a hug’ and thank people for their kindness.

‘She was just a ray of sunshine,’ he said.

In the hours after Heichel failed to show up for work at a Starbucks cafe on Oct. 16, relatives and friends launched a wide-ranging search.

However, Holt, who was a neighbor, an acquaintance and attended the same church, was nowhere to be found, The Oregonian reported.

When friends finally spotted Holt nearly 12 hours later, court documents say he told them he had been on his way to work that day when he was robbed at gunpoint by two black men.

Holt didn’t report that robbery to police that day but when questioned by officers for the first time on Oct. 17, he said he’d been shaken by the experience and spent the entire day walking and crying.

Police say Holt repeatedly changed his story about the alleged robbery.

Whitney Heichel’s Ford Explorer, with the passenger side window smashed, was found at a Walmart six hours after she disappeared.

A subsequent investigation led to the discovery of her body on Larch Mountain, east of Gresham.

Court documents released earlier say that Holt told Oregon State Police Sgt. Jon Harrington that he waited outside Heichel’s apartment and asked for a ride as she was leaving for work.

Minutes into the drive, he pulled a handgun and told her to drive to Roslyn Lake, the document said.

Holt then forced Heichel to perform oral sex before fatally shooting her.

He then disposed of his cellphone at the lake before driving to the mountain to conceal the body.

Heichel was shot four times.

Update: 10/23/12 GRESHAM, OR — Whitney Heichel Suspect Admits To Raping And Killing The Former Starbuck’s Employee:

The neighbor accused of killing Oregon barista Whitney Heichel told police he waited for her outside her apartment as she left for work and asked her for a ride, according to a police report. About five minutes into the ride, officials say, he pulled a gun on her.

Jonathan Holt, 24, who lived in the same apartment complex as Heichel and her husband, then “took [Heichel] by gun point in her vehicle” to an area near a lake and forced her to perform oral sex on him, according to the police report that said Holt “admitted” the events to a cop.

He then allegedly shot and killed her with a handgun before disposing of his cellphone in the lake. He took her body and concealed it on Larch Mountain in Multnomah County, Ore., where it was later found, according to the report.

Heichel, 21, vanished on her way to work as a Starbucks barista Oct. 16 and her body was found three days later.

Dr. Christopher Young of the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s office said Heichel died from four gunshot wounds. Holt’s cellphone was located at the lake and he was arrested after a series of interviews reportedly didn’t add up and officials found his fingerprints and DNA in her recovered car.

Holt made his first court appearance Monday evening, appearing via closed-circuit television in Clackamas County court wearing a suicide smock.

He reportedly cried throughout the arraignment, simply answering “yes,” to the judge’s questions.

Holt was charged with seven counts of kidnap, robbery, sodomy and murder. His case will soon be presented in a grand jury, and additional charges might be filed. If convicted of the most serious counts, he could face the death penalty.

He did not enter a plea at the hearing and will continue to be held at a county jail without bail. It is unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Heichel’s husband said he had “bet on forever” with his wife of less than two years and has now been left wondering why anyone would hurt her.

“She’s just very kind and loved everybody,” Clint Heichel told ABC News in an exclusive interview Monday. “She didn’t do anything to deserve this. It’s just, why? That’s the only question. Why?”

Heichel said the married suspect lived in his apartment complex, and they attended the same church. Heichel said he and his wife cared for the Holts’ plants and cats when they were away. Heichel helped Holt jump-start his motorcycle two weeks ago, he said.

“It’s very difficult, we only had a year and nine months together and when you get married you bet on forever,” Heichel said. “She was just a beautiful little person, just full of love, and she was just a ray of light to everybody.”

Police have not reported a motive for the killing.

Heichel was reported missing last Tuesday morning when she did not show up for work at Starbucks, which was a five-minute drive from her home. Shortly after, her Ford Explorer was found abandoned in a Walmart parking lot with its passenger-side window shattered.

Her husband reported her missing at 10 a.m., about 2 and a half hours after she was supposed to report for work.

Heichel’s bank card had been used to get gas at two different gas stations within eight minutes, her husband said, and police had been studying a surveillance video from the first station.

A man told police he recognized Heichel in the passenger seat of her car at another station shortly before 9:30 a.m., but said a man was driving.

Updated: 10/22/12 GRESHAM, OR — Murdered Starbuck’s Barista Whitney Heichel Was Raped Then Shot Several Times:

The young Oregon barista Whitney Heichel who vanished on her way to her job at a Starbucks was sexually assaulted before she was shot “multiple” times, according to charges filed today against the man arrested in her death.

Jonathan Holt, 24, a neighbor of Heichel and a member of the same Jehovah’s Witness church, appeared via closed-circuit television in Clackamas County court wearing a suicide smock.

He reportedly cried throughout the arraignment, simply answering “yes,” to the judge’s questions.

Holt was charged with seven counts of kidnap, robbery, sodomy and murder. His case will soon be presented in a grand jury, and additional charges may be filed. If convicted of the most serious counts he could face the death penalty.

He did not enter a plea at today’s hearing and will continue to be held at a county jail without bail.

“The cause was multiple gunshot wounds and the manner was homicide,” Dr. Christopher Young of the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s office told ABCNews.com.

The search for the missing 21-year-old woman came to a grim conclusion Friday night when police found her body and arrested a neighbor in connection with her death.

Police found Heichel’s body on Larch Mountain, a 40-minute drive up winding roads from her home in Gresham, Ore.

They arrested Jonathan Holt, 24, an acquaintance and neighbor, after a series of interviews reportedly didn’t add up and they found his fingerprints and DNA in her recovered car.

Heichel’s devastated husband said that he had “bet on forever” with his wife of less than two years and has now been left wondering why anyone would hurt her.

“She’s just very kind and loved everybody,” Clint Heichel told ABC News in an exclusive interview. “She didn’t do anything to deserve this. It’s just … why? That’s the only question. Why?”

Clint Heichel said that the married Holt lived in his apartment complex, and they attended the same church. Heichel said that he and his wife cared for the Holts’ plants and cats when they were away. Two weeks ago, Heichel helped Holt jump-start his motorcycle.

Heichel is grieving the loss of his wife and the future they had planned together.

“It’s very difficult, we only had a year and nine months together and when you get married you bet on forever,” he said. “She was just a beautiful little person, just full of love, and she was just a ray of light to everybody.”

Police have not reported a motive for the killing and have released few details about when Holt may have approached Whitney Heichel or if he had been stalking her.

Heichel was reported missing on Tuesday morning when she did not show up for work at Starbucks, which was just a five-minute drive from her home. Shortly after, her Ford Explorer was found abandoned in a Walmart parking lot with its passenger-side window shattered.

Her husband reported her missing at 10 a.m., about 2 and a half hours after she was supposed to report for work.

Heichel’s bank card had been used to get gas at two different gas stations within eight minutes, her husband said, and police had been studying a surveillance video from the first station.

A man told police he recognized Heichel sitting in the passenger seat of her car at another station shortly before 9:30 a.m., but said a man was driving.

Updated: 10/19/12 – Missing Starbuck’s Employee Murdered, Neighbor’s Arrested: 

GRESHAM, OR. – Searchers found the body of a young Oregon woman who vanished this week on her way to work and a neighbor has been arrested, Gresham police said late Friday night.

The body of Whitney Heichel, 21, was found on Larch Mountain, a remote, forested area east of Gresham, Police Chief Craig Junginger told a news conference.

After collecting DNA and fingerprints and conducting three interviews over three days, police arrested Jonathan Holt, 24, of Gresham, for investigation of aggravated murder, the chief said.

Holt lived in the same apartment complex as Heichel and her husband.

The Starbucks barista reportedly left her apartment for work at about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday on a drive that typically takes less than five minutes.

Her husband, Clint, called police roughly three hours later. He told investigators he tried to reach Whitney multiple times after her boss alerted him that she never arrived for her 7 a.m. shift.

Police said Heichel’s ATM card was used at a nearby Troutdale gas station at 9:14 a.m. Tuesday. Two hours later, her sport utility vehicle was found in a Wal-Mart parking lot with the passenger side window smashed.

A child later found her cell phone in a field that lies between the gas station and the Wal-Mart, giving investigators another venue to search.

Police have been searching Larch Mountain since Wednesday, believing that Heichel’s SUV was driven there.

“To say that this case brought fear and anxiety to the community is an understatement,” Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis told the Oregonian on Friday. “Our law enforcement personnel and our community searched for Whitney as if she were a member of their own family.”

Detectives interviewed Holt on Wednesday and Thursday before arresting him during a Friday night interview, the chief said.

There were “many inconsistencies” in Holt’s interviews, Junginger said.

Additional crime lab evidence received Friday morning tied him to Heichel’s vehicle, the chief added.

It was not immediately known if Holt was represented by a lawyer.

Jim Vaughn, a family spokesman, addressed the Friday night news conference, thanking police for their commitment in the case.

“Really, words can’t begin to express the sadness that our families are experiencing tonight,” Vaughn said.

“Whitney was a very loving person,” he added. “She was warm, she was kind, she was everything you would want in a friend, relative, spiritual fellow worshipper.”

He asked for privacy for the family, saying “our loss and heartache is too much to bear right now.”
Police took no questions.

Update: 10/19/12 – Kids find cell-phone belonging to missing Starbuck’s Employee, Whitney Heichel:

Children playing in an apartment complex in Oregon found a cell phone that apparently belongs to missing 21-year-old woman Whitney Heichel.

Parents of one of the children told ABC affiliate KATU that the children found Heichel’s phone in bushes outside the Troutdale Terrace Apartments Thursday evening. The family says the phone had a screensaver of a picture of Heichel and text messages asking if she was okay.

“I was pretty shocked. I mean I knew right away … I recognized the face,” April Fletcher, the mother of one the girls, told ABC News.

“[The kids] started flipping through some of the text messages … from [her] uncle, and there was one from Scott that was trying to find out ‘where are you. Are you OK?’ So I mean it just kind of confirmed it to me that it was her cell phone,” she said.

The apartment complex is about four miles away from Heichel’s home in Gresham, Ore. Police have not said whether the phone belongs to Heichel.   Hours before the phone discovery, Heichel’s mother, Lorelei Ritmiller, urged people in the Portland area to keep looking for her daughter, who she described as the “sunshine” in her heart.   Ritmiller spoke of her missing daughter at the Gresham city council chambers Thursday as investigators continued to search for clues after she went missing Tuesday.

“She’s gentle. She’s compassionate … She’s this compassionate laughing person. Her heart is as big as the sun … This is just a great human being. This is a person you’d think no one could ever hurt,” Ritmiller said, according to ABC News affiliate KATU.

Ritmiller said she last saw her daughter Monday, the night before she disappeared. She said her daughter was talking about her future and the desire to start her own family.   “That was her biggest hope — to have babies,” she said.

Ritmiller said her daughter’s nickname within the family is “Mama,” because she’s always been motherly figure to everybody, including her six siblings.   Whitney Heichel’s husband, Clinton, only managed to utter a few words as he attempted to make a statement, but broke down and left the podium.

On Thursday, police searched a wooded area nearby and examined the surveillance video at a gas station that captured Heichel’s black Ford Explorer around 9 a.m. the day she disappeared. Police said they have also interviewed the gas station attendant, but would not elaborate on what was said.   Investigators have not released any specifics about the video or who was driving the vehicle. Many other businesses have provided police with security footage, reported KATU.

Police said they recovered potential evidence during searches of Dodge Park and Larch Mountain on Wednesday and Thursday. Police used red tape to mark where they found broken glass and tire marks in the heavily wooded area near Heichel’s home.   In a briefing on Thursday afternoon, Gresham Police Department spokesman Lt. Claudio Grandjean said investigators found “some important items” during their search, although he would not elaborate. Grandjean said that tips have been pouring in with about two dozen reported to police on Thursday and 21 on Wednesday.

The police have labeled Heichel’s disappearance “suspicious.”

“Generally speaking, stranger-on-stranger crime is not very common,” said Grandjean.

Are Multiple Child Abduction Attempts in Arvada All The Work Of One Person?

Article Published on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 by ”Missing Persons of America” who has written this post about a possible child-predator lurking the streets of Arvada. This man has not been caught by police. There has been alot of abductions/attempted-abductions in the Denver/Arvada area lately. Are these attempts all the work of one child predator or multiple?

Missingpersonsofamerica wrote: — In Fall of 2011, the Arvada Police Dept. were looking for a man who was wanted in a series of attempted child abductions and an indecent exposure incident.

On November 4, three 12-year-old girls were in the area of 69th and Robb Street with a man approached them and exposed and touched himself.

On November 12, 2011, a man jumped out of the bushes and grabbed a 12-year-old girl at the Danny Kendrick Park and Apex Recreation Center and tried to abducted her, but she was able to get away.

On November 16, a 6-year-old child was approached by a man as she sat in a lounge area of the YMCA on Eldridge Street.  He covered her mouth with his hands and took her outside, but she was able to break free and run to her parents inside the building.

The police did not say if all these incidents were by the same man, but the descriptions are similar, and they were all in the same general area.

This man is still at large.  Could he have come to the area during hunting season and then left when the sketch was released, only to come back the following hunting season.  He was thought to have had a blue mountain bike. Could he have used that mountain bike to ride that Denver suburban park where Jessica’s remains were found.  Could this man be the one that abducted Jessica Ridgeway?

The suspect was described at the time as a white male, in his 50’s to 60’s with salt-and-pepper colored hair. He has a wrinkled face and a pot belly. His height is between 5’ 5” and 6’ tall and weighs approximately 230 pounds. He may be associated with a grayish-colored sedan and possibly a blue mountain bike.

Retired FBI behavioral analyst Clinton Van Zandt said tip-offs about the suspect could include someone suddenly growing a beard, getting a new  haircut or other changes in appearance. Other clues might be  out-of-character behavior, he said.

But, I am thinking if the suspect only comes to the town during hunting season, his growing a beard or strange behavior would not be noticed.

Possible Bones Of Michaela Garecht Discovered, Family waiting on lab results.

Pictured; School photo of Michaela Joy Garecht taken shortly before her disappearance.

Published: 10/11/12 – HAYWARD, CA – The family of Michaela Garecht is awaiting results of lab tests to tell them if a bone fragment found in a Linden well in San Joaquin County belongs to the Hayward girl who went missing 24 years ago.

Hayward police said Thursday morning that a 3-inch bone fragment unearthed with other remains in February was originally sent to an Arizona lab and has been forwarded to a Virginia lab for further analysis.

“We don’t have any definitive answer as to whether this is a bone from Michaela,” Hayward Police Sgt. Eric Krimm said. It will be several weeks before results are available, he added.

Michaela’s mother, Sharon Murch, said Wednesday that she believed the remains are likely those of her daughter,

who was 9 when she was kidnapped outside a Hayward corner store on Nov. 19, 1988.

Krimm said the age of the victim and the time period it was believed to be from were the only two clues linking the bone to Michaela’s disappearance.

Hayward police received the fragment about two weeks ago. It was unearthed in February in a Linden well, which is believed to hold the victims of the so-called “Speed Freak Killers.” The fragment belonged to a child between the ages of 5 and 13, police said, and Hayward officers hand-delivered it to a lab in Arizona “for testing in the possibility it may be that of Michaela.”

It is now at a Virginia lab for more tests, Krimm said Thursday.

The bone fragment was originally delivered to Joan Shelley, the mother of 16-year-old murder victim JoAnn Hobson, after it was excavated from the Linden well earlier this year. The remains were originally identified as those of her daughter, and returned to her family for burial. But rather than bury the remains of her daughter, who vanished in 1985, Shelley sent the them to Dr. Eric Bartelink, director of the California State University, Chico Human Identification Laboratory.

In Bartelink’s report, he states the use of large earth moving equipment led to “significant commingling” of the remains in the well, and that at least two other individuals were mixed in with the Hobson’s remains.

In total, 28 human bone samples were selected for DNA testing, the report states.

Asked why she might send the bones for analysis even though she had been told they were her daughter’s, Krimm said: “I think Ms. Shelley was looking for confirmation and closure.”

The report opens up the possibility that other victims of the “Speed Freak Killers” may have been unidentified. Krimm said Thursday that Hayward police had custody of other bones that were believed to be from other victims.

“The other bones — we have not even (attempted) to figure out who they belong to,” Krimm said. The department was working with the FBI to figure out how to proceed with those remains, he said.

Herzog and Shermantine were convicted of four murders and suspected in the deaths of as many as 15 people in and around San Joaquin County from 1994 to 1998. They were arrested in 1999. The pair were nicknamed “The Speed Freak Killers” because of their methamphetamine addiction. Herzog’s first-degree murder convictions were overturned by an appeals court and he was granted parole, but he committed suicide in January.
