Talent Attempted Murder Suspect Flees Scene in Victim's Car, Crashes After Elude With CHP

JCSO Case 22-3017


TALENT, Ore. - Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) detectives are investigating an attempted murder that occurred Monday night on the 9600 block of Wagner Creek Road in Talent. The female suspect stabbed and beat the 87-year-old female victim before stealing her car and fleeing the scene. The suspect was known to the victim.


A concerned relative discovered the victim around 9:00 yesterday morning when she failed to show up for a daily coffee date. The victim is in stable condition at a local hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.


The suspect, Christy Robertson, 47, of Keizer, Ore., has been charged with attempted murder, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, three counts of first-degree assault, and unlawful use of a weapon. After fleeing the scene in the victim's stolen car, Robertson drove to the coast and crashed while attempting to elude the California Highway Patrol (CHP). She was admitted to a local Gold Beach, Ore. hospital under Oregon State Police guard until JCSO detectives arrived and transported her to the Jackson County Jail.

The case is under investigation and will be prosecuted by the Jackson County District Attorney’s office. No further information is available for release.
