Nephew held in NE Portland man's death

by: COURTESY OF MCSO - MATTHEW G. BIGBOYA 22-year-old North Portland man will be arraigned Monday in connection with the death of his uncle a week ago.

Portland police arrested Matthew Galen Bigboy on Sunday at his North Portland home and charged him with the murder of 61-year-old Eugene Bigboy, whose body was found March 10 inside his house in the 5800 block of Northeast Center Commons Way.

Officers doing a welfare check on Eugene Bigboy March 10 were told he was in poor health with several medical issues. Inside the home, officers found him dead, but did not see any indications of a crime.

An autopsy by the state medical examiner determined that Eugene Bigboy died from homicidal violence.

It was the sixth homicide in Portland this year.
