Whitney Heichel: Hundreds express their love and sympathy at Gresham gathering

By Lynne Terry, The Oregonian

on October 26, 2012 at 7:07 PM, updated October 26, 2012 at 8:32 PM
 
GRESHAM – Hundreds of people from across the Portland area streamed into the Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in Gresham on Friday to share their love, sympathy and support with the family of Whitney Heichel, who was kidnapped and shot to death a week and a half ago.

Some cried and many hugged as members of Heichel's large family greeted the public in a long receiving line inside the hall. Her family included her mother, Lorilei Ritmiller, stepfather, Randy Ritmiller, and brother, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins.

The reception in the Heichel's place of worship marked the first public event since the 21-year-old's death. Her husband, Clint Heichel, said outside the hall that the family wanted to "give the community a hug" and thank people for their help.

"All the kindness – it's awesome," Heichel said.

Sandwiches, cookies, coffee and water were offered in a tent outside while big displays of tropical flowers decorated the church, flown in from Hawaii by a Gresham florist. Visitors who lined up to speak to the family walked past a collage of photos documenting Whitney Heichel's life, from her childhood to her wedding with Clint Heichel on Jan. 1, 2011.

"There's not one where she's not smiling," said Clint Heichel.

Speaking to reporters outside the hall, he appeared calm and steady. He said her death didn't seem real.

"I can't wrap my head around it," he said. "It's been an absolute roller coaster."

He said he'd married late – he turns 29 next month – because no one was right until he met her. "She was just a ray of sunshine," Heichel said.

The couple often traded text messages when they were apart, expressing love for each other. But the morning of Oct. 16, he'd received nothing when the manager of the Gresham Starbucks called, saying his wife had not shown up for her 7 a.m. shift.

"I knew instantly that something was wrong," he said.

WOW...   

I read it all.  Shocking and unsettling to say the least.

A few things that come to mind...

From the 2010 Toyota Scion that Jonathan Holt was driving but according to the document was Amanda Holt's car, a piece of paper was found titled "Sound Department" with the names J. Holt and C. Heichel written on it.

Amanda Holt knew and was FB friends with Whitney Heichel for about two years...and they went to the same church twice a week...but they weren't close friends according to Amanda Holt.

The Holt's had moved into the apartment complex where the Heichel's lived approximately two months before the murder.

The cellphone that Jonathan Holt threw out at the murder scene was actually Clint Heichel's phone that Jonathan told police he took from the Heichel's home and put a new SIM card in so he could use it.  Clint Heichel hadn't noticed the IPhone3 was missing until he was asked about it by police and then he checked and discovered it was missing.  The only call made from the cellphone that morning had been at 6:08am to the Starbuck's where Whitney worked.

Whitney was apparently shot (at least once in the head) in her vehicle with a 9mm.  Although the vehicle reportedly showed definite signs of an attempted "clean up" four spent 9mm shell casings were found in the vehicle.  Jonathan Holt's fingerprint was found on a Febreeze bottle that was left on the front passenger seat in the vehicle with about 1/4 of the contents remaining in it.

 



I know 

What stuck out for me in addition to what you have is that it appears Whitney was shot in the front seat of her SUV as they found bone fragments believed to be from her skull and what apears to be a tooth in the front. 

Also that Holt's wife did not believe his story about being robbed and that she said he had disappeared before and he lied about that.  I am assuming the incident Mrs Holt is talking about is the disappearance in the rental car that has been in the papers. 

Has anyone got the date of when he supposedly disappeared before?  I have a knot in my stomach that this is not the first time a lady was hurt and want to see if his first disappearance coincides with any attempted abductions etc.  TYIA

How terrible. That can't be said enough. 

Seems to me that a bullet broke the window of the SUV after Whitney was shot. A shot fired from close range will travel quite far even after hitting Whitney.

Holt watered the plants - in my humble opinion - this is where this all started. He snooped and found the old IPhone and I would be willing to bet Holt snooped all of Whitney's personal effect, too.

To me this crime is a sexual crime. An obsession with someone he couldn't have.

Another thought - with so little info being disclosed - it's hard to know exactly what type of abduction this is. Remember this is 6:45 am to 7 am.

1. Stranger who saw her getting into her car and went for it.
2. Neighbor who saw her getting into her car and went for it. Check
3. Crackhead / Methhead / Heroin junkie up all night and needed a fix, saw an easy opportunity. Partial Check - 4 cans of Loko
4. Starbucks patron.
5. Someone going to work who goes through this area.
6. Someone getting off of work and goes through this area.
7. Friend who had feelings that were not known. Check

Feel free to add.
8.Stalker who broke into the SUV and waited for her to enter SUV
9. Someone with a grudge Check
10. Whitney surprised someone who was in process of robbing/stealing SUV and it went bad fast

11. Serial killer on a new binge.
12. Local Jehovah Witnesses. Check
13. Garbage man making the early rounds.

I do feel sorry for his wife. She'll need support and time to move past her formal relationship with this idiot.

Prayers for Whitney.

Jonathan Holt, Whitney Heichel's Murder Suspect, Confessed To Having Child Porn: Police


Posted: 10/28/2012 10:06 am EDT Updated: 10/28/2012 10:29 am EDT

An Oregon man charged in the Oct. 16 rape and murder of a 21-year-old barista told police that he had child pornography in a bizarre confession unrelated to his alleged killing.

Police told ABC News that Jonathan Holt, 24 -- who's accused of sexually assaulting and shooting 21-year-old Whitney Heichel to death -- not only admitted to the killing, but copped to downloading child pornography. ::snipping2::

Holt, who lived in the same apartment complex as Heichel, allegedly waited outside her apartment at 7 a.m. the morning of the incident and asked her for a ride. A few minutes into the drive, Holt reportedly brandished a gun and forced her to perform oral sex on him at a lake.

 Holt cried in court on Monday as a Clackamas County Circuit Court judge told him he faces the death penalty if convicted.

Further details about Holt's alleged child pornography possession are currently unavailable.

Heichel and her husband were also acquainted with Holt through a Jehovah's Witness church that they all attended.

Suspect in barista's killing acted strangely after her death: Clackamas County Roundup
on October 29, 2012 at 5:59 AM, updated October 29, 2012 at 6:01 AM

In 44 pages outlining the case against accused killer Jonathan Holt, Gresham police paint the picture of a young man who was acting erratically -- dumping guns, ammunition boxes and apparently bloody linens in public places -- in the hours and days after 21-year-old Whitney Heichel went missing.

Wife of accused killer Jonathan Holt files for divorce

by KGW Staff

Posted on October 29, 2012 at 4:30 PM
Updated today at 8:10 PM

PORTLAND -- The wife of the Gresham man arrested in the murder of Whitney Heichel has filed for divorce, according to court documents obtained by KGW.

Amanda Holt petitioned for the dissolution of her marriage to Jonathan Holt on Friday, October 26 in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

 ::snipping2::

According to the probable cause document in the murder case, Holt confessed to investigators he waited outside Heichel's Gresham apartment on October 16 and asked her for a ride. Then, just five minutes into the ride, he pointed a gun at Whitney and forced her to drive to Roslyn Lake, where he sexually abused her and shot her to death.

Holt later led detectives to Holt's body, hidden on Larch Mountain.

Whitney and her husband, Clint knew Holt and his wife. They were neighbors at a Gresham apartment complex and sometimes house-sat for each other, when they went out of town.

They were also all members of the same Jehovah's Witness congregation.

I really understand why Amanda Holt would begin divorce proceedings against Jonathan.  She should do all she can to distance herself from him and pick up her life.  I think no matter what kind of support she has with her church or friends/family, it's going to be very difficult.

What I don't understand are women who stay married to or continue to support their men when they've done horrendous crimes, sometimes to their own children.

Detectives forced to put emotion aside during Whitney Heichel case

Posted: Oct 31, 2012 9:05 AM CDT
Updated: Oct 31, 2012 9:35 AM CDT
By FOX 12 Webstaff - email

GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -
Detectives who worked on the murder case of Whitney Heichel said they knew from the start that her Oct. 16 disappearance bore few similarities to other missing person cases.

Heichel's neighbor, Jonathan Holt, admitted to police he waited outside her apartment and asked for a ride as the 21-year-old left for her 7 a.m. shift at Starbucks, authorities said. He made her to drive to a remote area, where he forced her to perform a sex act on him and then shot and killed her, according to detectives.

Heichel was reported missing a few hours later. Detectives Fred Huffman and Scott Hogan, who were on the case since day one, said they immediately had questions about the woman's disappearance.

"This was not a person that had that pattern of behavior," said Hogan.

Hogan and Huffman interviewed Heichel's friends, co-workers, family and husband, Clint. The pieces of Heichel's life started to come together, revealing a dependable, thoughtful and loving young woman who had no reason to run off.

Though Huffman said it was obvious Heichel was a special person, investigators couldn't focus on that fact.

"You are constantly trying to figure out where that person is, what's the next step. So for me, the emotional side sits there. You don't disregard it, but you put it aside until you do what you need to do," Huffman said.

On the evening of Oct. 19, Hogan joined a team of investigators on Larch Mountain where search crews found Heichel's body.

 ::snipping2::

In the past week, Hogan and Huffman have moved on to other cases and resumed their normal workload. But they said no one in the Gresham Police Department or the Multnomah County Major Crimes Team will ever forget Heichel's case.

"I was ... very proud of my co-workers because even though it was bad news, people would know what happened," Hogan said.

A life well loved

Created on Tuesday, November 06, 2012 | Written by Kristopher Anderson |
While still mourning their loss, the family of Whitney Heichel share memories of a happier time

The mornings these days are solitary for Clint Heichel. The routine that used to be shared by two is now carried alone. But every morning he still hears the voice of his wife.

Saved on his phone is a voicemail Whitney Heichel left in August, reminding Clint, as she would every day, that she loves him, misses him and will talk to him soon.

The message is private, but he plays it on a Friday evening in the living room of his wife’s childhood home, where friends and family gathered to share fond memories of her.

It’s been 18 days since their loving wife, daughter, sister and friend was kidnapped and murdered. The wound is still fresh, still deep.

When the message ends, frozen and quiet is the small, dimly lit room. Whitney’s innocent voice leaves everyone breathless. The only sounds are faint whimpers and sniffles as the group comforts and supports one another.

Sitting cross-legged on the floor next to Clint are two of Whitney’s sisters, Chloe Ritmiller and Gilliene Benedict. Their pain is visible and heartbreaking. Whitney’s mom, Lorilei, walks across the room and sits between her two daughters. She puts her arms around both and squeezes them tight.

Randy Ritmiller, Whitney’s step-father, leans gently against Chloe, as she lifts her glasses to dry her watery eyes.

Jordan Hunter, Whitney’s brother, makes his way toward his wife, Velvet, kneels down and kisses her on the shoulder. Sitting next to them is Jim Vaughn, the family’s close friend and spokesman during and after the days of Whitney’s disappearance and subsequent recovery. He remains as stoic as one can in the company of such anguish.

After a few moments Clint breaks the silence.

“I listen to that message every single morning, and it’s hard,” he says, as his mother, Marilyn Heichel, places her hand on his knee.

“But at least I have a little voice. That’s what I have left.”

No one is impervious to the pain. But at a time when sorrow, misery, anger and heartache is so crippling, their collective strength overcomes.

 ::snipping2::

Momma

The Ritmiller house always had two mothers — Lorilei and Whitney. As a young woman, Whitney eagerly talked about her dream of becoming a mother and showed her maternal instincts as a young girl.

During a family trip to a beach house, Lorilei was inside nursing her daughter, Chloe, while 3-year-old Whitney and Gilliene, 1, played in the front yard.

But as the young mother sat there, she heard two deafening sounds. The first was fighter jets screeching overhead, followed by the shrieks from Gilliene, terrified by the loud noises.

Panicked, Lorilei race downstairs toward the front yard, the screams of her daughter continuing to pierce her ears.

Finally she reached the front door, then stopped. There was little Whitney, scared and eyes filled with tears, but sprinting up the driveway with her little sister wrapped tightly in her arms, refusing to let go.

“She was going to get that baby in the house, and she wasn’t going to leave her behind,” Lorilei says with a proud smile. “That’s how she was with all her siblings.”

That’s how she was with everybody.

Whitney’s nurturing and protective personality extended well beyond her family. She took an interest in people — at school, in her congregation, anyone embracing of her warmth. It was unique, and it was inspiring.

Each year her elementary school awarded students for scholastic achievements. Whitney was in third grade and Lorilei got a call from one of the teachers asking her to attend the afternoon assembly.

With all the students and parents in attendance, Lorilei remembers Whitney’s teacher standing in front of the audience with an announcement: “There is an award I’ve not given to anyone before,” the teacher said. “But there is one student in the school that’s exemplary of the kindness she shows to others, the way she’s accepting of everybody. And it has moved me so much that I’ve created a special award for this student.”

Lorilei will never forget what the teacher said next.

“Then she said, ‘Will Whitney Ritmiller come up and accept the award for kindness?’ ” Lorilei says.

Sitting on the couch, she suddenly drops her head, eyes growing damp.

She and Marilyn clasps hands tightly, then Lorilei takes a deep breath and continues.

“That’s who she was,” Lorilei says.

Smiling, Jim says, “That’s who she is.”

“Yeah, that’s who she is,” Lorilei says. “And it’s why people embraced her.”

 ::snipping2::

She never hesitated to give a compliment — whether it was Gilliene’s skills on the piano or her oldest sister Chelsea’s sense of style.

“She’s the sister that always reinforced you,” Lorilei says. “She was the sister that always told you you’re beautiful. She was the sister that always told you how much she loved you. She was the most expressive.”

Whitney always found joy in nurturing others — family, friends and especially babies.

When one started to cry, she sprung into action, calming and caring for the baby. It was a common sight when her congregation gathered.

“She was a baby magnet,” Jim says.

Whitney had a friend whose older brother was going through some tough times. While he struggled with alcohol-addiction, his parents were raising his infant son. Still the whole family, including the father, attended spiritual assemblies together.

There Whitney played with the young boy, showering him with love and affection. Watching the two led the father to a powerful realization. He wanted the same bond Whitney shared with his son. His life needed to change.

So he gave up the booze, cleaned up his life and worked to restore that relationship with his son.

Lorilei recalls a letter she received from him shortly after her daughter’s death.

“Whitney changed my life and it’s my biggest regret that I didn’t get a chance to tell her,” he wrote. “But I need to tell you. Whitney taught me that I could love my son, that I could give him the things, spiritually, emotionally, materially, that he needs.

 ::snipping2::

On New Year’s Day 2011, they got married. He was 27, she was 19 and the next year and a half was wedded bliss.

Whitney cherished the moments they had together and always craved Clint’s attention. At family dinners, she wanted Clint focused on her.

Clint never could resist the wishes of his adoring wife. And because of that, he was able to spend Whitney’s last night with her.

On the evening of Monday, Oct. 15, Whitney, Chelsea and Velvet were over at Lorilei’s house planning the last minute details of a friend’s wedding.

It was supposed to be a girl’s night so they could focus on the wedding. But Chelsea and Velvet had their husbands over, so Whitney begged her mom to let Clint come over, too.

“But I need you to stay focused,” Lorilei replied.

“I will stay focused, I will stay focused,” Whitney said. “I just miss him.”

Finally, Lorilei said OK. And even though it was late and Clint was preparing to enjoy a quiet night at home, he got dressed and came over.

With most of the family there, the women reminisced about their weddings, tried on veils and laughed alongside their husbands.

“It was a perfect night for her,” Lorilei says of her daughter.

 ::snipping2::

For Clint, it’s hardest at night. “Just before you go to bed and there’s that quiet,” he says. “Normally it’s the time where I would talk about the day or she would talk about the day — that’s the hardest for me because she’s not there. Going to bed by myself, she’s not there. Waking up in the middle of the night and looking over to her side of the bed — she’s not there. Waking up in the morning on her side of the bed because she’s not there.”

But in those moments, where silence was always filled with her tender voice, Clint plays the message.

“Hey you,” she softly says. “I’m just calling to make sure you’re up and to say hi. I love you and hope you have a good day and I’ll talk to you later. Bye.”

Wife of Whitney Heichel murder suspect cites 'irreconcilable differences' in divorce filings

By Everton Bailey Jr., The Oregonian
on November 06, 2012 at 5:34 PM, updated November 06, 2012 at 5:51 PM


The wife of a Gresham man accused of kidnapping, sexually assaulting and killing a 21-year-old neighbor cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason she is filing for divorce.

Amanda H. Holt, 24, is requesting an equitable division of assets with Jonathan D. Holt, 25, and neither party is represented by an attorney, according to Multnomah County Court records.

Amanda Holt filed for divorce from her husband of two years on Oct. 26.

We cannot let too much time pass without giving a special thank you to every single person who came to the aid of Whitney Heichel. Whether you helped search for her in those first few crucial days, or whether you sent cards or flowers, provided a meal for family members, called us or texted us with your feelings of concern, sent donations through the Find Whitney Heichel website or gave private donations.

We also want to give a special thanks to those who live in Clint's apartment complex, who came by to show him their support during the days that followed, especially one concerned neighbor who helped tremendously, with a show of support at local restaurants.

Thanks to those of you who came from the area, and those who drove for hours, to stand in a two-hour line waiting to meet and give your support to everyone in our family. We also want to give a special thanks to the Gresham Outlook for following up with a human-interest story about Whitney and The Oregonian. Thanks to most of the news media for giving this the most careful attention and showing respect for the family, taking into consideration our emotional state of mind.

Thanks to the Gresham Police Department and the Multnomah County Sherriff's Office, which worked tirelessly on this case, allowing us the privilege to work alongside them, ready to help in any way we could. Thanks also to the city of Gresham, Clackamas County and Multnomah County district attorneys' offices.

Also thanks to the various businesses, such as Walmart, Starbucks, Dutch Bros., Shari's Restaurant, Office Depot, Chase Bank, Albertsons, Auto Trim Design, C U Latte Espresso, Cash & Carry, Costco, Dawn Food Products, Don Pedro, Food Services of America, Fred Meyer, Gresham Memorial Chapel, Subway, Grocery Outlet, Harbor Freight Tools, Irish Brothers Coffee, Limos NW, Party Place, PepsiCo Food Service, RealTime Roasters, Royal Cup Coffee, Safeway, Selma's Bakery, El Indio, Tapatio Mexican Restaurant, Harry Oaks K9 Search & Rescue, Home Depot, Lowe's, Photocraft, Rose City Bindery and many others.

Everyone not only supported us, but provided whatever we needed when we needed it. We couldn't have done it without you.

We were all horrified by this terrible tragedy, yet amazed and touched by your loving support. We will never forget your generosity. You have touched our hearts.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

The wife of a Gresham man accused of kidnapping, sexually assaulting and killing a 21-year-old neighbor cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason she is filing for divorce.

Amanda H. Holt, 24, is requesting an equitable division of assets with Jonathan D. Holt, 25, and neither party is represented by an attorney, according to Multnomah County Court records.

Amanda Holt filed for divorce from her husband of two years on Oct. 26.
