Who is Benjamin Foster?

Benjamin Foster, aka Benjamin Obadiah Foster (born in 1986), was a 36-year-old wanted criminal whose name started floating in the headlines on January 29, 2023, after Grants Pass Police Department released a statement claiming Benjamin as a highly dangerous suspect wanted for committing serious crimes like kidnapping, assault, and attempted murder.

Police also released a few photos of him, but it was doubted that he might have cleaned his beard and colored his hair to become unrecognizable.

All the officers of the Grants Pass Police Department were searching for him, and soon the need for an additional measure was felt following a $2,500 cash reward got announced for any informant whose tip would help capture Foster.

FYI, it all started when police received a call from a residence in Shane Way, Grants Pass, Oregon, regarding an assault. When cops reached the place, they found a female unconscious.

According to first responders, she has wounds all over her body caused by severe beating. The lady revealed that Benjamin tortured her, and following that, police started searching for him, and as per CNN Foster died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a standoff with police.
