Neighbors help, hope to find Whitney Heichel .

GRESHAM, Ore. -- Many in Gresham who know Whitney Heichel, and others who have never met her, are ready to help find her.

Friday night police were asking them to keep away from the search scene, so they were doing whatever they could to raise awareness.

At the Real Time Coffee Chop in Gresham, Mandy Hutchinson changed the sign on her reader board. Instead of advertising pumpkin lattes it now reads “Bring Whitney Home.” It also advertises the tip line phone number. Whitney applied for work at Real Time and stopped for coffee nearly every day. Her parents are regular customers too.

Heart-rending: Clint Heichel, husband of Whitney Heichel, 21, brakes down as he attempts to speak at a press conference Thursday

The husband of an Oregon barista who disappeared en route to work earlier this week sobbed uncontrollably during Thursday’s press conference and was hardly able to utter a word as the missing woman’s mother begged for her daughter’s safe return.

‘It hurts to breathe right now,’ Lorilei Ritmiller told reporters while speaking of 21-year-old Whitney Heichel. ‘But we just want to find her and we're not going to stop.’

Heichel was reported missing by her husband, Clint Heichel, after she failed to show for her 7am shift at a Starbucks in the Portland suburb of Gresham. The drive from her apartment complex to the coffee shop takes less than five minutes.

GRESHAM, Ore. - Police announced Friday night in a somber news conference that they had found the body of missing 21-year-old Whitney Heichel on Larch Mountain and had made an arrest in the case.

Police arrested 24-year-old Jonathan Daniel Holt, of Gresham, on a charge of aggravated murder after a series of interviews with Holt.

~Snipped~

During interviews, police said there were inconsistencies in Holt’s story. They said they were able to obtain Holt’s fingerprints and DNA, and additional evidence narrowed their investigation to Holt by Thursday.

At the same time Holt voluntarily came in for an additional interview Friday evening, police said investigators discovered Heichel’s body. Holt was also arrested at about that time, police said.

Whitney Heichel: Body Found, Neighbor Arrested

(VIDEO)

Oct. 20, 2012

~Snipped~

Her husband, Clinton, reported her missing at 10 a.m., about 2 and a half hours after she was supposed to report for work.

"I called her several times," Clinton Heichel said Wednesday. "I texted her several times and then actually at about 9:30ish, her phone got to the point where you would call and it went straight to voicemail."

Whitney Heichel's bank card was used to get gas at two different gas stations within eight minutes, her husband said, and police had been studying a surveillance video from the first station.

A man told police he recognized Heichel sitting in the passenger seat of her car at another station shortly before 9:30 a.m., but a man was driving.

Suspect in Whitney Heichel slaying found through intense investigation by police, volunteers

By Helen Jung, The Oregonian
on October 20, 2012 at 5:00 PM,
updated October 20, 2012 at 5:44 PM


On the morning that she vanished, Whitney Heichel kissed her husband goodbye before heading out into the chilly, damp air.

It was dark -- sunrise was still 45 minutes away last Tuesday morning -- and Heichel had a 7 a.m. shift at a Starbucks just a short drive away.

But she wasn't the only one outside the Heatherwood Apartments at that time, detectives would learn, as they investigated why the 21-year-old woman never made it to work.

Over the next four days of intense investigative efforts, Jonathan D. Holt, another resident of the Gresham apartment complex, would go from potential witness to prime suspect in Heichel's disappearance.

Neighbors never saw Holt, Heichel together

By Emily Sinovic, KATU News and KATU.com staff Published: Oct 20, 2012 at 5:48 PM PDT
Last Updated: Oct 20, 2012 at 6:07 PM PDT

GRESHAM, Ore. – Police said Saturday there was no reason to believe that Whitney Heichel and her suspected killer were anything more than acquaintances.

Jonathan Daniel Holt, 24, was arrested Friday night in connection with the Gresham woman’s murder. Holt lived at the same apartment complex as Heichel and her husband Clint.

“I don’t know how we have these people around here, especially with our kids,” said neighbor Maria Sandoval, who lives in the same Gresham apartment complex.

Sandoval said she never saw Holt and Heichel together.

Another neighbor who was a close friend of Heichel's told KATU News that she had never seen Holt's face before Friday night's news conference.

Police keep mum on arrest in killing of Ore. woman

Updated 7:49 p.m., Saturday, October 20, 2012

~Snipped~

Police said autopsy results would not be released Saturday and sought to derail speculation that Holt's relationship with the Heichel was anything more than as an acquaintance.

"There is no evidence that has surfaced in the investigation leading investigators to believe there was anything more," according to a city news release.

~Snipped~

Holt first came to their attention Wednesday, when he volunteered to be interviewed, Junginger said, and two later interviews revealed inconsistencies in his statements. He submitted to fingerprint and DNA analysis, and that helped tie him to the SUV, the chief said.

It was not immediately clear if Holt had obtained a lawyer. He remained held without bail at the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Police did not respond to requests for comment Saturday and said in an email that no further information would be forthcoming.

Arraignment Scheduled For Gresham Murder Suspect

AP | Oct. 22, 2012 7:07 a.m.

The man accused of killing a 21-year-old Gresham woman on her way to work is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on an aggravated murder charge.

Jonathan Holt has been moved to Oregon City for the Clackamas County Circuit Court arraignment because police believe Whitney Heichel was killed in the county, not Multnomah County where her body was found Friday on Larch Mountain. She disappeared Tuesday on her way to work at a Starbucks.

Sources: Whitney Heichel was sexually assaulted before being killed

By KATU News and KATU.com Staff
Published: Oct 22, 2012 at 9:44 AM PDT
Last Updated: Oct 22, 2012 at 1:44 PM PDT

GRESHAM, Ore. - Whitney Heichel, the 21-year-old Gresham woman who was found dead last week, was sexually assaulted before she was murdered, multiple law enforcement sources told KATU News.

Murdered Barista Whitney Heichel Was Raped, Shot Several Times

(VIDEO)

By CHRISTINA NG (@ChristinaNg27) and ABBIE BOUDREAU
Oct. 22, 2012

The young Oregon barista Whitney Heichel who vanished on her way to her job at a Starbucks was sexually assaulted before she was shot "multiple" times, according to charges filed today against the man arrested in her death.

Jonathan Holt, 24, a neighbor of Heichel and a member of the same Jehovah's Witness church, appeared via closed-circuit television in Clackamas County court wearing a suicide smock.

He reportedly cried throughout the arraignment, simply answering "yes," to the judge's questions.

Holt was charged with seven counts of kidnap, robbery, sodomy and murder. His case will soon be presented in a grand jury, and additional charges may be filed. If convicted of the most serious counts he could face the death penalty.

GRESHAM, Ore. -- The man accused of killing 21-year-old Whitney Heichel was arraigned Monday after confessing to police, according to court documents obtained by KGW.

Johnathan Holt told investigators he waited outside Heichel's Gresham apartment on October 16 and asked her for a ride, according to the probable cause document. Then, just five minutes into the ride, he pointed a gun at Whitney and forced her to drive to Roslyn Lake and perform sex acts on him.

Whitney Heichel's accused killer acted erratically after her death, documents say

By Aimee Green, The Oregonian
on October 26, 2012 at 8:06 PM,
updated October 26, 2012 at 8:08 PM


Jonathan Daniel Holt appears by video feed before Judge Katherine Weber Friday afternoon in Clackamas County Circuit Court. He is charged with kidnapping, sexually assaulting and killing Whitney Heichel. His trial was scheduled for December but probably won't start until sometime next year.

In 44 pages outlining the case against accused murderer Jonathan Holt, Gresham police paint the picture of a young man who was acting erratically -- dumping guns, ammunition boxes and apparently bloody linens in public places -- in the hours and days after 21-year-old Whitney Heichel went missing.

~Snipped~

The documents offer a chilling and detailed summary into the investigation into Holt, who was indicted Friday in Clackamas County Circuit Court on charges of aggravated murder, kidnapping, robbery and sodomy.

Grand jury indicts Jonathan Holt on additional charges in death of Whitney Heichel

By Steve Mayes, The Oregonian
on October 26, 2012 at 4:06 PM, updated October 26, 2012 at 4:42 PM



Jonathan Holt, the Gresham man accused of murdering Whitney Heichel, was indicted Friday in Clackamas County Circuit Court on additional charges of kidnap, robbery and sodomy.

Holt also has been charged with six counts of aggravated murder in the Oct. 16 shooting death of Heichel, a neighbor and fellow member of the Jehovah's Witnesses church. A grand jury issued an indictment Friday that included new crimes.

Holt was charged with several counts of aggravated murder as legal strategy. In such cases, the state typically presents various theories of a crime. In Holt's case, he is charged with committing murder to cover up the other crimes or to conceal his identity.

I have commented here before. Eric Primesberger's mother was a good friend of mine. Whitney was ALSO a friend of mine. Most of everything reported on Reality Chatter is correct. One thing I will say, Holt laid in wiat for Whitney to come out of her aprtment, he then forced her into the car. She did not give him a ride willingly. There is so much more that isn't in the public yet.....so much more. Randie

The news is slightly incorrect about the attendance at the memorial on Friday. They quit counting at 2400. It was estimated between 3000 and 4000. It was supposed to end at 5:00 pm...but, there were still more that wanted to pay their respects. The last one was hugged at 7:00 pm....they wouldn't quit till the last person was met and hugged. The private memoiral service on Saturday had 840 there. The family, two seperate congregations, the police department, the mayor and any Starbuck employees. When others arrivved they were taken out to a large tent in the parking lot if they really wanted to stay. Randie

Randie, thank you so much for your comments & updated information.

I am so very sorry for your losses.

Whitney was a beautiful, young woman. This was such a terrible, horrific thing that happened.

I saw a media picture of Whitney's mom giving Whitney's husband, who was crying inconsolably, a hug. It made me cry. It was very obvious from the picture that her husband and her family love her very much. And from what you wrote, she was a really beautiful woman on the inside too, to have so many people show up to pay their respects.

Thank you again for adding your comments & updates here, and feel free to do so anytime.
