Multiple law enforcement agencies, medical examiners, and the Tillamook County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the death of a female found late Friday along
an Oregon highway about 18 miles east of Tillamook. 
They have confirmed the woman’s death was a homicide.

hendricksonCriminal investigators from the Tillamook County Major Crime Team, with the assistance of State and Tillamook County medical examiner offices, identified the victim as Kayla Ann Hendrickson, 16, from Beaverton, Oregon.  An autopsy done yesterday at the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed her death was caused from gunshot wounds.

Officials also confirmed a person of interest related to this investigation died Saturday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound along the northern California coast. 

The only suspect involved in her death, Jacob Allen Green, 24, of Newport, Oregon, reportedly shot himself in his parked car in Humboldt County the following day and died at a local hospital.  He had worked for a Newport area logging company.

According to police, Hendrickson and Green knew each other.  The circumstances leading to Hendrickson’s slaying in Oregon and Green’s self-inflicted suicide in Humboldt County remain murky at best.

Investigators were contacted Saturday by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office regarding a death investigation they were conducting involving a male subject in a vehicle matching the description of the of one connected with the death investigation.

Here is what the Oregon State Police reported:

hwy 6On Friday, January 18, at approximately 10:14 p.m., a vehicle described as a late 1980s to early 1990s full-size pickup was observed by a witness stopped on the north side shoulder of the westbound lane on Highway 6 between milepost 18 and 19.

Two people, a man and woman, were seen along the highway near the stopped pickup.

About 25 minutes later, the witness contacted a Tillamook police officer advising of the suspicious circumstances along Highway 6 near milepost 18 about two miles east of Jordan Creek Road.  An OSP trooper
responded and found the dead woman along the highway.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help to develop additional information.  Hendrickson is described as:

  •  White female estimated 18 – 25 years of age
  •  Approximately 5’8″ and weighing 135 – 145 lbs
  •  Long bleach-blonde hair with a layer of dark hair underneath the lighter top layer
  •  Wearing a pink buttoned down blouse underneath a camouflage long sleeve fleece woman’s full zipper front sweat jacket, short “hot pink” shorts, and tan cowboy boots with an approximate 2 inch heel

 Anyone with information regarding this investigation, including anyone who was traveling in the vicinity around the times mentioned, is asked to call Oregon State Police Northern Command Center dispatch at (800) 452-7888.
