While executing a search warrant at a home in Hillsboro on Tuesday just hours after the autopsy results were complete on Tricia. Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s office found Lemarr Carver, 42, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Tricia Carver, 47, was found Monday in a field north of Salem after being reported missing to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. Following a tip from the public, police found Tricia in a field by Vachter Road NE and River Road NE.

Lemarr Carver, a Beaverton attorney, originally had a law practice in Salem and earned a law degree from Willamette University College of Law.

Tricia and Lemarr Carver were married a little more than a year ago, but were estranged at the time of their deaths.
Marion County worked with the Inter-Agency Washington County Tactical Negotiations Team and Crisis Negotiation Unit to execute the search.

Investigators collected evidence at the scene overnight. The investigation is considered ongoing.


“Tricia always had a smile when she saw her friends and family,” Shannan Edwards wrote in an email to the Statesman Journal. “Whether it had been hours, months or years, it did not matter. Her smile was always there to greet you and you knew it was because she was so genuinely happy to see you.”

Tricia was passionate and protective of friends and family, Edwards said.

“Tricia would always mention how important it was to see her family at holiday gatherings, birthdays, game nights and weddings,” she said. “Family and friends were her life.”

Edwards expressed her gratitude for support and condolences in the family’s time of mourning.

Friend Jessica Bauerstarted a GoFundMe page for Caver’s family to help cover funeral expenses. Family and friends have donated more than $4,500 of the $25,000 goal.
