The U.S. Marshall’s Office has now joined the search for a man accused of shooting and killing an Oregon weighmaster.
Authorities say that on February 6, Clackamas County weighmaster Grady Waxenfelter, 47, pulled over a white pickup driven by Dirck White, 41, for not having a license plate.
White allegedly shot Waxenfelter in the head and drove over his body as he fled the scene.
White was a driver for O’Malley Brothers Trucking. He was hauling a load of wood at the time of the murder.
A short time after the incident, White returned to O’Malley Brothers’, dropped off the pickup, jumped into his own vehicle and drove away.
According to FOX 12 news, at the time of the shooting, there was an active warrant out for White’s arrest on a weapons charge. In addition, White is a suspect and is wanted for questioning in a case involving the rape of a child.
A $7,500 reward has been offered for any information leading to the whereabouts of White. White’s former employer, O’Malley Brothers, contributed $2,500 to the reward fund.
White may be driving a 2004 silver four-door Mercedes Benz with Washington plates: ANB 7070.
White is a 6′ tall, 190 pound Hispanic male. He has black hair and brown eyes.
Authorities say White should be considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, call 911 immediately. Do not approach him.
