Today is the six year anniversary of the death of an Oregon deputy who was killed in a late night traffic crash involving another vehcile. Alfredo De Jesus Ascnecio, the driver of the involving vehicle, is wanted on two counts of criminally negligent homicide for causing the death of his 19-year old passenger and Marion County Deputy Kelly Fredinburg.
A bit more of the description of this tragic night from one of the linked articles below:
"Last year, Deputy Fredinburg's family announced the establishment of the "Oregon Officer Reward Fund" that will be used in this and future cases to help find suspects wanted in connection with line of duty police officer injury or death criminal investigations in Oregon. This is the first case to be supported by the "Oregon Officer Reward Fund" to help investigators find the fugitive responsible for the death of Deputy Fredinburg. This reward is in addition to $1,000 offered by Crime Stoppers (#07-28) for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio, who turned 26 years of age in January 2013, has been sought by the Marion County District Attorney's Office, Oregon State Police (OSP) and Marion County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) since he was indicted August 3, 2007 by a Marion County Grand Jury on two counts of Criminally Negligent Homicide.
On June 16, 2007 at approximately 11:30 p.m. Deputy Fredinburg was enroute to an emergency call southbound on Highway 99E north of Gervais when his patrol car was struck head-on by a northbound vehicle driven by De Jesus Ascencio. Deputy Fredinburg's patrol car caught fire and he was pronounced deceased at the scene. Fredinburg joined MCSO in August 2006 after working the previous six years for the Polk County Sheriff's Office. He was 33 years old when he died.
De Jesus Ascencio, who was 20 years of age at the time of the crash, was treated for critical injuries at a Portland-area hospital. Investigators learned later that he fled the U.S. to Mexico around the time he was indicted August 3, 2007 and an arrest warrant was signed by a judge. Investigators believe De JESUS ASCENCIO is currently at an unknown location in Mexico. He was last believed to be in the area of Puacuaro, Muichoacan, Mexico.
The Fredinburg family worked closely with law enforcement officials to establish the reward fund available to help law enforcement arrest persons wanted in connection with line-of-duty police injury and death criminal investigations. Over $25,000 has been raised to date for the "Oregon Officer Reward Fund" (OORF)."
