The Portland Peace Encampment condemns the violent murder of Jessica Kate Williams in the strongest possible terms. Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Jessica Kate Williams. The Portland Peace Encampment stands for non-violence and conflict resolution through dialog and peaceful means both here in Portland and around the world.
James Daniel Nelson, who is one of the suspects in custody for the murder, has never been a member of the Portland Peace Encampment. He has never "camped" nor even spent the night at the Portland Peace Encampment across from City Hall, as reported in the June 12th edition of The Oregonian.
However, we ask anyone with any information concerning this senseless act to contact the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-0097. We earnestly hope all the killers of Jessica Kate Williams are caught. Peace must begin here and now.
