PORTLAND, Ore—The Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to solve the 2007 disappearance and homicide of a 15-year-old boy. On May 7, 2007, 15-year-old Alejandro “Alex” Castrejon-Tovar was reported missing to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Alex, who also went by the nickname “Smiley,” was reportedly last seen boarding a bus in June 2007 on Southwest Farmington Road in Beaverton. On November 18, 2008, Alex’s body was found in an area of thick brush near Southwest Shelton Street and 160th Avenue in Aloha.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner determined Alex was the victim of a homicide. According to investigators, Alex was associating with street gang members around the time of his disappearance, although it is not known if his association played a role in his death.
