As Portland train attack victim died, a man stole his wedding ring, police say

Many Portlanders thought little could shock them more than the fatally stabbing of two men on a train for defending teens against anti-Muslim and racist taunts.

But after last week’s attack, in which 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian is accused of killing two men by slashing their throats, police released details of a new element to the story this week.

As Ricky Best, a 53-year-old Army veteran, lay dying on the train, police say a man sneaked up to him, took his backpack and slipped his wedding ring off his finger.

Police released photos and surveillance video on Thursday of the middle-aged man, who wore a mullet haircut, a baseball cap, a black T-shirt with an image of Marilyn Monroe and an American flag, and black shoes.
