Public help sought in 2015 Trillium Lake homicide of Gresham man posted on 06/02/2018

A 2015 homicide at Trillium Lake remains unsolved.

On Sept. 24, 2015, Frank Wilson, 68, of Gresham, was found dead in his vehicle in the parking lot of the Trillium Lake recreation area. The Oregon State Medical Examiner determined that Wilson died of a gunshot wound to the chest and ruled the death a homicide.

Investigators believe that Wilson was killed while sitting in the driver’s seat of his pickup sometime on the evening of Sept. 23.

On Thursday, Sept. 24, 2015, a group of bicyclists riding in the area came across a white Ford F-150 pickup with the truck’s owner deceased inside. The group immediately called 911.

Wilson was a longtime businessman who owned and operated Clackamas Tire and Brake.

Investigators are seeking any information from the public to help solve the case. Anyone who had contact with Wilson between Monday, Sept. 21, 2015 and Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015 is encouraged to share that information by contacting Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Detective Terway or leave a tip via the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line, or the CrimeStoppers of Oregon Tip Line.

Investigators also believe that someone may have inadvertently altered the crime scene prior to police arrival and would like to hear from that person or persons.

Wilson was actively trying to not be located, according to authorities. He had been engaging in behavior described as uncharacteristic and distant.

CrimeStoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 for information reported to CrimeStoppers that leads to an arrest in any unsolved homicide or other felony crime, and tipsters can remain anonymous.

Information learned from social media sites should be shared as these tips may lead to the identification of a suspect. Those links can be shared through CrimeStoppers.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line is 503-7232-4949 or online at web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp.

CrimeStoppers of Oregon’s anonymous tip line is www.p3tips.com/823.
