Gresham, Ore. – The Gresham Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to locate 26-year-old Kassandra Kitchens, wanted for murder in connection with the September 2021 execution-style murder of Andrew Sherrell.
Investigators believe Sherrell, 35, was lured over from his home in Bend with the help of Kitchens, in a series of events that ultimately led to him being murdered on September 24, 2021, in the 18900 block of NE Portal Way.
Kitchens knows she is wanted and is actively avoiding capture. She was indicted by a Multnomah County Grand Jury in December 2021, has an active warrant for her arrest, and is facing charges that include:
Murder in the Second Degree; Kidnapping in the First Degree; Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Kidnapping in the First Degree; Assault in the Third Degree; Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Assault in the Third Degree; and, Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Unlawful Delivery of Oxycodone.
Detectives learned Sherrell was someone involved in selling illegal drugs, spending time between Central Oregon and the Portland Metro area. The investigation found he was the target of a kidnapping and execution-style murder because of a drug debt, with multiple suspects conspiring to commit the felonious acts. He was bound at the hands, assaulted, and driven from downtown Portland to the location of the eventual homicide scene in Gresham, where he was killed and left on the side of the road.
Kitchens is the only alleged suspect who is not currently in custody. Others arrested in connection with this case include:
Cesar Estrada-Nava, 31, of Portland; D’Sean Maurice Baker, 43, of Portland; ANDREW KEITH BUSHNELL, 36, of Eugene; and, Christian Joshua Wobbe, 23, of Portland.
Law enforcement officials from multiple agencies collaborated on this investigation, including: the Gresham Police Department, Portland Police Bureau, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Port of Portland Police Department, Oregon State Police, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Bend Police Department, Redmond Police Department, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Vancouver Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Beaverton Police Department, and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
