Suspect accused of stealing Portland stabbing victim's wedding ring and backpack arrested

Suspect accused of stealing wedding ring, backpack from Portland stabbing victim

Portland police are looking for a man accused of stealing TriMet stabbing victim Rick Best's wedding ring and backpack after the attack.

"Suspect in theft of property from Ricky Best has been apprehended", the Portland Police Department tweeted. It remains unclear if this other bag was also stolen or belonged to the suspect.

Police say the backpack contains "personal items important to the Best family", but declined to give additional details.

Mr Tschaggeny will be charged with theft, evidence tampering, and abuse of a corpse, according to police.

Best, a 53-year-old Army veteran, was stabbed to death after standing up for two girls being verbally assaulted by a man on the MAX. A third stabbing victim, 21-year-old Micah Fletcher, suffered knife wounds to the neck but survived.

"They've suffered an vast loss and this is just one more layer of tragedy to their already bad experience", Sgt. Pete Simpson said, adding that it was "really an unconscionable act" and "awful scenario for this family".

The suspect is captured on surveillance video leaving the MAX train carrying Best's black backpack in his right hand.




Following the attack, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler published a statement in which he lauded Best, Meche and Fletcher as heroes. The stabbings attracted widespread national attention.

"Based on the investigation, detectives believe that Tschaggeny removed Best's ring from his finger after the attack", Simpson said.

Appearing in court on Wednesday, Christian shouted: "Leave this country if you hate our freedom-death to antifa".

Best retired from the Army in 2012 after 23 years of service, which included tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Christian was arraigned Tuesday on several charges, including two counts of aggravated murder, attempted murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation and being a felon in possession of a restricted weapon. I understand that is no measure against their grief.

"I don't even think he hesitated", she said.
