The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of Curtis Smith.

On February 25, 2021, Curtis D. Smith, age 25, was found suffering from gunshot wounds in Farragut Park, 7736 North Kerby Avenue, in Portland, Oregon. He died at the scene. It is believed that he was living in Fresno, California, but had traveled to Oregon for a friend’s funeral.

“The cycle of violence is spinning faster and faster, and the pain in our community is extreme. Our mission is to protect the people who live and work in Oregon, but we can’t do it alone. We need the public’s help, and we need it now. If you know anything about Mr. Smith’s shooting, please contact us immediately,” said Kieran L. Ramsey, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon.
