Juvenile charged in 13-year-old Milana Li's murder, police say
The Beaverton Police Department charged a juvenile with first degree murder for the death of 13-year old Milana Li, according to a press release.
The juvenile was charged on the morning of Friday, May 20, police said. Police can't disclose further details due to juvenile confidentiality laws, the press release said.
As a matter of editorial policy, The Times does not report the names of juveniles accused of a crime unless they are tried as adults.
Officers found Li's body around 3 p.m. May 10, when Beaverton police responded to a call on the report of suspicious circumstances at Westside Linear Park in Beaverton. Li's body was found in a small stream near the intersection of Southwest Barrows Road and Horizon Boulevard.
On May 11, the Oregon State Medical Examiner ruled her death a homicide.
Li, a sixth-grader at Conestoga Middle School, was reported missing by her mother shortly before 1:15 p.m. Monday, May 9.
