It seemed that Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct would spend all day on a “Missing Person” call, on which they were dispatched on January 26 at 8:44 a.m., east of SE 92nd Avenue in the 9300 block of SE Sun Crest Drive – apparently in both the Lents and Happy Valley neighborhoods.

As time went on, more officers – and eventually, PPB Homicide Unit detectives – arrived at the scene, and stayed all day, originally looking for an adult male.

“After an extensive effort to locate him, officers developed information that the man might be inside the locked and secured home,” PPB Public Information Manager Mike Benner revealed.

“They forced entry and searched the home to do a welfare check; and, once inside, officers found the man, deceased,” Benner added. The “Suspicious circumstances” found by officers at the scene triggered the callout of Homicide Unit detectives.

For several hours, the investigation closed SE Sun Crest Drive between 92nd Avenue and the location where it loops around at the foot of Mt. Scott into SE Grandview Terrace.

On January 29th, officials announced that the gunshot victim had been identified as 37-year-old Phillip E. Pierce, Portland. The Medical Examiner determined Pierce had died of a gunshot wound.

Then, on January 30th, Portland Police released suspect information. Detectives identified Analiesa Golde, the victim’s own wife, as the suspect in the case; she’s now wanted for Murder in the Second Degree.

At the time, officials say that Golde’s whereabouts were unknown, although they suspected that she had traveled north, into Washington state. They noted that she should be considered armed and dangerous.

On February 21, the PPB revealed that the suspect, Analiesa Golde was found deceased in the Long Beach, WA area on February 20. It appears Golde died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Her vehicle has been recovered by law enforcement.

Anyone with “non-critical” [as the PPB information put it] information about this case is asked to contact Detective Brad Clifton at Brad.Clifton@police.portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0696 or Detective Calvin Goldring at Calvin.Goldring@police.portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0256 and reference Case No. 24-19762.

Little yet revealed about Foster-Powell shooting

Looking south from SE Holgate Boulevard along 73rd Avenue, officers find “evidence of shooting” in the area.

“I’ve been out walking my dog here [along S. E. Holgate Boulevard near 73rd Avenue], and I heard ten – maybe a dozen – re\ally loud ‘bangs’. I thought it might be fireworks, they were so rapid,” Margie Holmes told East Portland News as PPB patrol vehicles rolled into the area on Monday evening, January 29.

“I think I heard someone screaming; but, I wasn’t going down the street to check!” Holmes added.

These officers find shooting evidence along the street.

PPB East Precinct officers, who were dispatched to this “Shooting” call at 5:45 p.m., first closed off SE Holgate Boulevard from SE 72nd to 74th avenues; and 73rd Avenue from Center Street south to Schiller Street.

Soon, there were seven PPB officers at the scene, including some likely associated with the Bureau’s Focused Intervention Team. Officers with flashlights were looking for evidence along the road, and among parked vehicles,along SE 73rd Avenue as far south as Raymond Street.

At 6:11 p.m. Holgate Boulevard was reopened to traffic.

An officer examines evidence found after the shooting.

“Officers who responded to reports of a shooting [in that area] located ‘about’ 10 shell casings, and two vehicles struck by gunfire,” PPB Public Information Manager Mike Benner told East Portland News.

“From looking at the reports, it appears as if there were no injuries,” Benner said, adding that the case had now been referred to the Enhanced Community Safety Team.

While police officials had little to say about this shooting incident, see how diligently officers and investigators are investigating this crime scene:

Although the PPB hasn’t requested help from the community to solve this shooting, if you do have information that could help their investigation, please email it to crimetips@police.portlandoregon.gov, and refer to Case No. 24-22850.
