The gruesome discovery of four men lying murdered inside a Creston-Kenilworth house in the 4000 block of S.E. Boise Street, on June 6th of last year, left the whole neighborhood on edge.
The following day, officials announced to the press that the deaths of 31-year-old Mitchell Nacoste, 27-year-old Kendall Gragg, 24-year-old Donovan Lenford, and 23-year-old Eyion Willis had all been ruled "homicide by gunshot".
After that, surprisingly little additional information was forthcoming about the horrific crime. And there were no further public updates on this case from the Portland Police Bureau for nine long months. Then, on Wednesday, March 2nd, a Police spokesperson announced that an arrest had been made in this case â€“ in Texas.
"Portland Police Detectives worked with the Denton County (Texas) Sheriff's Office's Special Operations/Warrant Division, as well as with the U.S. Marshals East Texas Fugitive Task Force, to arrest 27-year-old Jeremy Michael Lenoire in Frisco, Texas, in connection with these homicides," the spokesperson said.
