Man arrested in theft of Portland train victim's ring

Portland police have apprehended a man caught on video surveillance leaving the scene of last week's train stabbing with the backpack of one of the victims.

Police released surveillance photos and video of the suspect.

Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, won a poetry slam in 2013 with a piece about the prejudices faced by minorities, including Muslim Americans. Best died on the train and another victim died at a hospital.

Homicide detectives said early investigations indicate that Tschaggeny allegedly removed Best's ring "after the attack".

A wallet from inside the backpack is still missing, Best's son, Eric, told KOIN 6 News.


Some of Best's possessions ― including his wallet ― were missing from the backpack when officers recovered it. Tschaggeny is facing multiple charges, including second-degree theft and second-degree abuse of a corpse. "That action is just incredibly heartless and unconscionable".

Suspect in theft of property from Ricky Best has been apprehended.

The attack happened on 28 May on Portland's Max train, when a man began shouting "hate speech" at two young women on the train, one of whom was wearing a hijab. Police said the attacker slashed the throats of Best and Namkai-Meche, as they tried to defend the girls, killing them.

Police posted images of the suspect on YouTube and Twitter late Thursday, along with a plea for the public's help in locating him, reports Washington Post. "I stabbed the two (expletives) in the neck and I'm happy now", he was recorded as saying. I understand that is no measure against their grief.

Christian was arraigned on Tuesday on three felony murder charges, one felony assault charge, three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanor counts of intimidation. The aggravated murder charges carry a maximum penalty of death. CNN has reached out to Christian's attorney for comment.
