SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police continue to search for the man they are naming as a person of interest in the death of a woman who died from a gunshot wound to the stomach last week. 

Detectives believe associates may be hiding 28-year-old Cameron D. Keith, who has not been seen since police were called to a home on March 24, 2015 and found Christen (Crissy) Nichole DeMars suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach. DeMars was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

When officers arrived, they were met outside the home by a man telling them "she's upstairs and she's overdosing." The two officers went into the apartment and found DeMars on a bed. The two officers reported seeing numerous needles, a "cooking spoon" and other drug paraphernalia near the bed, while DeMars was unresponsive and throwing up. Officers attempted to communicate with DeMars and she was eventually able to tell them her name.

Court documents state one of the officers told medics she thought DeMars had been shot. Documents say the officer was "finally able to convince medical personnel to check DeMars for a gunshot wound" and saw what appeared to be a gunshot wound in DeMars' stomach. DeMars was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died.

During their investigation, police found a protection order that protected DeMars from a man, later identified as Cameron Keith. Police ran the criminal history of Keith and found he's had several felony convictions and a history of domestic violence. 

Detective believe associates may be harboring Keith, and Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward to anyone who provides information that leads them to the location of Cameron Keith. 

Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.

Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect the cash reward.
