Investigation continues into Unidentified Female case from 1978- Union County (Photo)08/26/22

On August 27, 1978, the body of a young female was found in a wooded hillside outside La Grande, Oregon.Her identity was never determined.Almost, 44 years later the investigation into her case continues.

On August 16 and 17, 2022, Oregon State Police Forensics Service Division, State Medical Examiner’s Office Forensic Anthropologist, State Police Major Crimes Detectives, and members of the Union County Search and Rescue team conducted an operation on a rural property in Union County. The operation was in response to recent interest shown by cadaver dogs brought in by the Finley Creek Jane Doe Task Force involving the unidentified remains of the woman found in 1978.

Union County Search and Rescue conducted an intense grid search of approximately 3 acres around the original burial site and the recent locations of interest by the cadaver dogs. Over fifty bones were located by the search and rescue team. The State Medical Examiner’s Forensic Anthropologist examined each of the bones and none of them were determined to be of human origin.

Forensic Scientists and Detectives conducted excavations at the two points of interest from the cadaver dogs. They also excavated the original burial site. The three locations were examined thoroughly by sifting dirt and material through screens in an attempt to locate even the smallest of bone fragments or other evidence that could be of use in determining an identity through DNA testing. Unfortunately, nothing of evidentiary value was discovered during the operation.

The Oregon State Police and other law enforcement partners will continue to stay in contact with all interested parties in hopes of successfully resolving the identity of the Finley Creek Jane Doe and bringing closure to her family.

If you think you might have any information in this case, please contact the Oregon State Police Dispatch at 800-442-0776 and reference case #SP78-752103.

In August 2019, Oregon State Police Troopers and United States Fish and Wildlife Service Special Agents served search warrants in two Oregon counties and conducted simultaneous interviews in Oregon, Ohio, and Michigan. The warrants were served on David H Ravia, 69, from Dayton, Oregon, and Caleb L Richmond, 48, from McMinnville, Oregon. The warrants and interviews stemmed from a two-year investigation into ten years of alleged unlawful guiding activities taking place in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area within Wallowa County, Oregon.

On September 1, 2020, the Wallowa County Circuit Court issued search warrants for the arrest of the two individuals. On November 6, 2020, David H.

Richmond was cited to appear, in lieu of custody, for 12 counts of Outfitting/Guiding Without a License.

These individuals, called Outfitter Guides, are required to provide the state with proof they are adequately insured and bonded, have basic First Aid and CPR skills, carry the required minimum safety equipment, and if using a motorized boat, carry either a US Coast Guard license or OSMB Motorized Passenger Boat Operator’s Certification, depending upon the waterbody. Outfitter Guides also agree to conduct themselves according to a set of Ethical and Professional Standards and are held responsible for them as well.​ To learn more about Guides & Charters in Oregon visithttps://www.oregon.gov/osmb/Pages/Guides-Charters.aspx

On July 28, 2022, at approximately 11:42 AM, Troopers from the Oregon State Police St. Helens worksite responded to the report of a reckless driver on Highway 30 milepost 28. It was reported that the offending driver was “all over the road” in a silver passenger car. The reporting party provided a description of the offending vehicle, which was later identified as a silver 2003 Buick Regal 4-dr. Troopers located the suspected vehicle but quickly lost sight of it within the City of St. Helens. A short time later, the suspected vehicle was relocated by Troopers and observed to have dangerous driving behavior. Troopers initiated a traffic stop on the silver Buick near the McDonalds in St. Helens. The silver Buick fled, and a pursuit ensued eastbound toward Scappoose. The suspect fled to approximately milepost 26.5 and then turned westbound back to St. Helens. The suspect then fled westbound through St. Helens, Columbia City, and finally into Rainier. The driver, who was the sole occupant, was observed driving dangerously and intentionally over-taking vehicles head-on, drove at varying speeds, and was unable to drive within his own lane.

The suspect drove so dangerously that Troopers discontinued pursuing. The police later located the suspected vehicle in Rainier. When the suspect vehicle was located it was parked and unoccupied.

A containment perimeter was established, and a coordinated search ensued. Meanwhile, information was collected from agency partners regarding the suspected driver’s identity.

At about 5:20 PM, the suspect was located within the containment area near Grocery Outlet in Rainier. The suspect’s identity was confirmed as Davis Jeffery Hartman (38) of Tacoma, WA., and he was taken into custody without incident.
