Below is a composite sketch that the Douglas County Sheriff's Office released to the media on Friday, October 16, 2009. The sketch was obtained by witness recall. Please remember the composite is not an actual photograph of the possible suspect, just a general sketch from witnesses.
Barbara was taken from us (murdered) on October 1, 2009 at about 6:00 pm in Glendale, Oregon.
Helen was critically injured during the same time and at the same location.
The suspect that caused this destruction in our lives is described as being average height, thin build, and wearing a dark (possibly fake) beard. Clothing has been described as dark grey pants or black pants, light blue or grey hooded sweatshirt with pockets in the front. The suspect was also seen wearing a small dark colored backpack and was on foot in the area around the time of the shooting.
There may be a vehicle associated with the suspect described as a black Toyota 4Runner SUV between 1995 and 2002. The vehicle was also described as possibly a black Toyota pickup with a black canopy.
If anyone has any information on the person responsible for this violent attack, please leave information on this blog or contact the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
Barbara and Helen are loved by many people and our thoughts and prayers are with them.
