Around 8:15 p.m. on April 7, police in Portland, Oregon, responded to a hotel and found a 19-year-old victim in the parking lot with “serious” head injuries.

Police identified the victim as Clyde K. Hunt.

Investigators said the injuries were the result of an apparent assault and Hunt was taken to the hospital. He died weeks later on April 26.

An autopsy determined Hunt died from traumatic injuries and his death was ruled a homicide.


On May 11, Portland police arrested Jacauree T. Walker, 25, in connection to the case. He was charged with second-degree murder and two counts of first-degree assault. He is being held in the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Police have not said what led to the alleged assault.

Teddie Lubbers, Hunt’s grandmother, told KOIN 6 News that she has a hard time looking at pictures of the teen.

“I wake up and I think he’s in the living room with me and I just, I miss him a lot. He was a good boy,” she told the news station. “He was a typical, you know, 19-year-old. But he didn’t deserve it. He didn’t deserve it at all.”
