A few years ago I found out that A friend of mine was murdered in February of 1976 (on or around February 26th) . in Portland, Oregon. The police told the family it was drug related or a gay bashing, it was brutal. He was 8 years older than I am, I was his step sisters best friend. I meet him only once, he was a wonderful person. The family did not pursure the investigation into the murder of this wonderful person. (Embarassement because they really didn't know him). I am new to this website and don't know how to revive this cold case. The family, as often happens, faded from the investigation, they didn't want to know. I think that Michael deserves justice. At 13 I was very attaced to this young man (he was 8 years older), he was attacted to me, his family forbid us to have future contact (age difference). He may have been gay, he may have been involved in drugs, he may have lived in the wrong place, all I know is that he was a very special person and I can't forget him. With all of the advances in DNA there should be new evidence. Did the police make an error, invade his home and kill him? Was it a drug deal gone wrong? What really happened to Michael Nored? Please help me resolve this crime. It haunts me. How do I get things moving forward? Thank you for your help.
