EXCLUSIVE: Murder in Ontario driveway sparked by debt collection effort

ONTARIO – A Payette man gunned down outside Ontario two weeks ago was trying to collect a $500 debt after warning that “he kills people for hire,” according to a police affidavit obtained by the Malheur Enterprise.

Doug Madrid, 54, died in a driveway in rural Ontario northeast of Interstate 84 when he was shot once with a shotgun.

Witnesses told police the murder, which took place the evening of Wednesday, May 9, was planned, according to the affidavit.

Four people were subsequently indicted in Malheur County Circuit Court for murder, conspiracy, hindering prosecution, unlawful use of a weapon, and unlawful possession of a destructive device. They are Sara R. Carter, 25, of Vale; Sean C. Prokop, 29, and Ryan S. Macias, 24, of Ontario; and Matthew T. Jaggi, 24, of Parma. Madrid, who once lived in Nyssa, was convicted in Payette . . .
