I think this is the same girl as the one that went missing a few years ago who was possibly a runaway. This time unfortunately she was found deceased in a storage unit. Which is almost a sure sign of homicide.
Portland woman's body found in storage unit in Gresham
Gresham and Portland Police are investigating the death of an 18-year-old Portland woman whose body was found in a storage unit in Gresham.
The woman, identified by an autopsy as Anisa Marie Swearingen, had been reported missing last Wednesday.
The decomposed body was discovered last Saturday after the manager of the Money Saver Mini Storage at 19215 NE Halsey opened a storage unit that was emitting a foul odor, police said.
The cause of death is under investigation.

Most of these storage unit places have pretty good security. . .cameras at least. I think they would be able to tell who came and went to that unit. Who holds the contract on that unit? It doesn't seem that it would be too difficult to figure out.The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.--Albert Einstein

My parent's storage unit business does not have cameras, fences, etc nor do my parents live on or near the property. Either my dad or his business partner is on the property at least once a day so if something did begin to smell, they'd know and would cut the lock off to investigate.

This is sad. You can see a pretty quick decline based on mugshots here http://convicted.me/inmates/swearingen
And who knows if the other Swearingens are related(popular name in OR?) but quite sad.
Hope they find out what happened to the girl

Man accused of murdering woman found dead in Portland storage unit
Gresham police say 56-year-old Ron Alexander Marcus of Portland rented the storage unit where Anisa Marie Swearingen’s body was found. He was taken into custody Thursday morning in North Portland.
His arrest comes after her death was ruled a homicide Wednesday. The exact cause of death was not disclosed.

Thank God some people are not to bright.
How stupid do you have to be to put a dead body in a storage unit you hold the contract on?

I just wasn't sure that it was a homicide at the time. I was thinking maybe OD. Regardless, I'm glad they found her and hopefully there will be some justice.The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.--Albert Einstein

From February 2014:
Investigators say the 57-year-old never told police exactly how he killed 18-year-old Anisa Swearingen before stuffing her body into a large plastic container and leaving it in a Gresham storage locker. Marcus refused to say anything, even when a Multnomah County Circuit judge Friday gave him another chance to speak before handing down a 17-year prison sentence...
Two weeks earlier, Marcus pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter...
State medical examiner Dr. Karen Gunson determined Swearingen died of homicidal violence, but Gunson wasn’t able to determine the exact method used. She ruled out a gunshot, a stabbing, a drug overdose and other causes of death. Gunson suspected that Swearingen was strangled to death with a cloth.
