PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man whose family said never fully recovered after being attacked by a homeless man three years ago in Southeast Portland passed away last week. Bill Nickelby went to a convenience store on SE Powell Boulevard to buy his family snacks on Aug. 12, 2018. Court documents stated Kory Thomle approached Nickelby at the store and asked him to buy him some beer. Nickelby refused and reportedly said something to the effect of “that’s sketchy” to Thomle. Thomle waited outside the store with a baseball bat and jumped Nickelby as he was leaving, grabbing him by the throat before punching him in the face.
