On Wednesday, Jackson County prosecutors formally charged Larsen with murder, sodomy in the first degree, manslaughter in the first degree, assault in the first degree, and criminal mistreatment in the first degree. All of the charges are related to the alleged abuse and death of 2-year-old Alivia Allen on August 5.

INITIAL REPORT: One person is in custody following an investigation into the death of an Eagle Point toddler. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) detectives arrested Russel Brian Darrell Larsen, 25, Thursday on charges related to the death of two-year-old Alivia Rose Allen.

Detectives lodged Larsen in the Jackson County jail on the evening of August 15, 2019. Charges include first degree manslaughter, first degree assault, and first degree criminal mistreatment. Larsen's bail is set at $207,500.

On August 5, 2019, at 3:24 p.m., an Eagle Point Police Department officer was dispatched to a call of CPR in progress at a mobile home park in the 200-block of South Shasta Avenue. The mother of 2-year-old Alivia had called 911 to report that her daughter was not breathing.

Dispatchers relayed CPR instructions by phone until first responders arrived and continued CPR. Alivia was transported to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, where she died later that evening. Eagle Point PD requested assistance with the investigation from JCSO detectives.

An autopsy performed on August 8, confirmed Alivia’s death was a homicide. The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma.

Detectives learned Larsen had been babysitting Alivia on the day of August 5. Larsen was in a relationship with Alivia’s mother and had recently moved into the home.

JCSO detectives have been assisted in the investigation by personnel from the Eagle Point Police Department and agencies that make up the Major Assault and Death Investigation Unit (MADIU): Oregon State Police, Medford Police Department, and the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office. Anyone with additional information about the case can call the JCSO tip line at (541) 774-8333.
