PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A young couple was attacked in their home in rural Marion County earlier this month, leaving the wife severely injured and the husband dead.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said Travis and Jamilyn Juetten were attacked in their home around 3 a.m. on August 13. The 26-year-old man died from multiple stab wounds. The 24-year-old wife was also stabbed but is in stable condition and recovering at a hospital.
Detectives say an intruder came into the couple’s home near the intersection of Howell Prairie Road NE and Hazelgreen Road NE and attacked them.
There is no information about a possible suspect. Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime.
Travis Juetten’s family released a statement Friday afternoon:
“Our family is grieving the loss of our son, nephew, brother, and friend Travis Juetten, age 26, whose life was brutally cut short the morning of August 13th by an unknown assailant who murdered him inside his home. His wife Jamilyn was seriously injured and is recovering in the hospital. Travis was a kind, gentle, and loving person who did not deserve to lose his life, and for reasons unknown to any of us. While we grieve Travis’s loss and wish for Jamilyn’s health, we continue to be concerned for the safety of our family, friends, and neighbors. If you have any information that could be of assistance, please contact Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Your help is greatly appreciated.”
