The Freshwater Murders were an act of family annihilation believed to be perpetrated by Clark Freshwater. On February 14, 2009, Clark's wife Dorothy and his children Jared, Emile, and Tabitha Freshwater were shot to death in the family home, Freshwater Knoll, in Samuelton, Oregon. Only the youngest member of the family, Towhee, survived. In the aftermath of the slayings, Clark disappeared and remained at-large for more than ten years.

In 2018, Clark's body was discovered in a shallow grave in the cemetery at the long-abandoned Hensley Asylum for Infirm Ladies and Needful Girls outside Crestview, Oregon.
