“Police said they did not collect her attire because they believed it would not provide evidence.”
This is BS and if she still has the pants uncleaned, even today they likely could recover DNA evidence from them. This is how police have been able to resolve murders that occurred 20 years ago—by applying the latest DNA techniques to forensic evidence collected way back when.
She reportedly phoned a friend that very night and told her the story. I would think the combination of this friend’s contemporaneous account, the DNA evidence and the masseuse’s email correspondence with the hotel would be sufficient for an IMPARTIAL investigator to obtain a conviction. Portland ain’t exactly in a Red state, so it’s pretty clear that politics rather than good policing were at play in this ugly incident.
“Red State”, no way exactly!
Portland is a haven for tie-dyed, pony-tailed bleeding hearts. I would not live there if you bought the house for me. Years ago, Oregon worried about being “Californicated”. It has come true.
