Update: Name released in Tigard homicide
Death is second homicide in three months
Tigard Police are investigating after a 73-year-old man was found dead in a home in Metzger, early Friday morning.
Tigard Police have said Nick Krochmal was found dead by a family member at a home in the 9500 block of Southwest 69th Avenue, near Taylors Ferry Road, at about 3:20 a.m., Friday and called 911.
The Washington County Major Crimes Team is investigating, and Jim Wolf, a spokesman with the Tigard Police Department said that the death was being investigated as a homicide.
This is definitely a homicide investigation, Wolf told The Times news partner KOIN 6.
Police have not released a cause of death.
No suspect has been arrested, but Wolf said that investigators were working several leads.
There does not appear any reason for alarm or concern for the general public, Wolf said.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
This is the second homicide in Tigard this year. In January, a Beaverton man was shot and killed outside his ex-wife's home near Southwest Canterbury Lane. The alleged shooter in that case, Orlando Pouncey, was arrested two weeks later near Tacoma, Wash.Add a comment
