    OR - Renee Sandidge, 59, Portland, 7 June 2014



    http://www.katu.com/news/local/Polic...262294641.html

    Police are looking for a missing woman whose disappearance was deemed suspicious after a SERT team was sent to a home in N.E. Portland late Friday night.

    If you’ve seen 59-year-old Renee Sandidge, call police immediately. She’s a white woman who is 5-foot-2, 100 pounds with red hair and brown eyes.

    She was last seen on foot.

    A body was found at a home in the area of NE 65th and Failing, and a number of suspicious circumstances prompted the police to call in homicide detectives.

    Detectives are trying to find a person associated with the home who is now missing. It is unclear at this time who that person is or if there is any relation to the dead body...

    Officials said the location had a number of “security features” that made it tough for the special tactics team to secure it. It took until the early hours of Saturday for the site to be secure.

    Boy, it's really hard to piece together what is going on. The report says that LE used tear gas and flash bangs at the house.

    Still not clear what's going on, if Renee's a victim or a suspect:

    Anna Temme, who lives nearby, said police asked residents to stay inside and warned neighbors close to the house that they'd hear some loud noises as the SWAT team worked the scene. "I heard a few really big bangs that shook my house," she said.

    Other neighbors who'd been out and returned home Saturday night were asked to stay on TriMet buses that had been brought to the scene. They said they stayed there keeping warm until about 2 a.m., when officers escorted them to their houses.

    Several neighbors said the residents in Sandidge's house have been in the neighborhood for years but they didn't know them well. Temme, whose house looks onto Sandidge's backyard, said a tenant may live in a trailer parked behind the home. It appeared police had searched the trailer, she said, and it looked heavily damaged from Saturday's SWAT activity.

    Good Lord! What in the world was the SWAT team looking for to do that much damage to the trailer? It looks like a bomb went off!

    An earlier version of this story reported a body had been found in the house, but that is not confirmed.

    Also... what the heck is going on? It does sound like it was booby-trapped...

    Officials said the location had a number of “security features” that made it tough for the special tactics team to secure it. It took until the early hours of Sunday for the site to be secure.

    Around 11 a.m. Saturday, police were sent to the house to check on the welfare of a person living there. But they soon called for homicide detectives to join them.

    Around 9:30 p.m., a SERT team deployed the tear gas and some area residents were evacuated.

    Police still aren't t saying much about about the "suspicious circumstances" at a home in NE Portland that promoted authorities to call in homicide detectives yesterday afternoon.

    Her disappearance is suspicious, authorities said in a release, because of “a number of factors discovered by Homicide Detectives.”

    She was last seen walking, but it’s not known if she has access to a car.

    Chris Mitchell, who lives across the street, said the homeowner is a survivalist, explaining that Sandidge has been in trouble in the past.

    Oregon doesn't have easily accessible court records, so I can't find what she's been "in trouble" for in the past.

    A day after an enormous police response that evacuated homes and shook up a whole community, neighbors are asking police to explain what actually happened in the white house on their block...

    Sandidge rented the basement, according to neighbors, and frequently clashed with the owner who lived upstairs.

    Neighbors tell FOX 12 police have been called to the home before, and that Sandidge had an ongoing dispute with the home's owner, Gary Lewis. No one had seen Lewis, but tell FOX 12 his wife and daughter are staying with a relative while police search the home.

    Homicide detectives are now looking for two people connected to a house in Northeast Portland, neither of whom has been seen since early Saturday...

    Gary Alan Lewis owns the home at 3934 NE 66th Avenue. Renee Sandidge-Crowell, 59, also lived at the home. Her disappearance is considered suspicious, authorities said. Police have not been able to contact Lewis, 61, and detectives want to speak with him about the circumstances surrounding the dwelling...

    Her disappearance is suspicious, authorities said in a release, because of a number of factors discovered by Homicide Detectives.

    I don't know how many times I've said this so far and the thread is not even 1 full page yet. But WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE???

    So now they're both considered missing? But they want to talk to Gary about the "condition of the home"? Does that mean the "booby-trap" stuff? Is he missing, or are they "looking for him" for other reasons?


    Gary Alan Lewis, 61, owns the Northeast Portland home where Renee Sandidge-Crowell lives. Neither has been seen since June 7, 2014. Homicide investigators are looking for both, June 9, 2014. (Photos released by PPB)
