In a significant development, the Ashland Police Department has assigned two new detectives to the investigation into the unsolved homicide of David Grubbs, a 23-year-old Ashland resident who was tragically killed on November 19, 2011. The decision to bring in fresh investigators comes in response to recently received leads that could potentially shed new light on the case.

“This case remains of utmost importance to David’s grieving family, the local community, and the Ashland Police Department,” stated an official release by the Ashland Police Department. However, attempts to obtain comments from APD Chief Tighe O’Meara on this recent development were unfortunately unsuccessful.

The unfortunate incident took place just over twelve years ago when Ashland police officers responded to reports of a suspicious death on the Central Bike Path, located behind Walker Elementary School and near Hunter Park. The incident occurred at approximately 5:35 p.m., as detailed on the Ashland Police Department’s official website. The victim was identified as David Grubbs, a young resident of Ashland.

Prior to the assignment of the new detectives, various law enforcement agencies, including the Oregon State Police, Ashland Police Department, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, Jackson County District Attorney’s Office, Medford Police Department, and the Central Point Police Department, had all actively participated in the investigation, as mentioned on the Ashland police website.

Authorities are urging anyone with information related to the case to come forward and assist in bringing justice to David Grubbs. If you have any relevant information, please contact the Ashland Police Department at 541-488-2211. An anonymous tip line is also available at 541-552-2333, or you can email tipline@ashland.or.us. It is worth noting that a reward of over $21,000 is still being offered for any information that leads to an arrest.
