A homeowner reported finding a body in their garage, then police discovered a second dead person, authorities in Oregon said.
Police responded to a home at 11:17 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 17 in Bend, the city police department said in a news release.
The bodies of Angela Alexus Pastorino and Alfredo P. Hernandez, both 18 years old and from Bend, were found, police said. They had been reported missing by a “concerned family member” the previous day, police said.
When police were at the scene, 41-year-old Wesley Abel Brady of Bend showed up, authorities said.
Brady, Pastorino and Hernandez had been working on the home for the owner the day before their bodies were found, police said.
Pastorino and Hernandez were “drinking and partying” after work at the home, where Brady also was living at the time, The Bend Bulletin reported.
Brady and Hernandez got into a fight that led to the killing of the two, according to the news release.
Brady is accused in the Aug. 16 killing of Pastorino and Hernandez, police said. Police said he placed their bodies in the garage before going to Christmas Valley, a community about 95 miles south of Bend.
He was arrested and faces multiple charges, including aggravated murder, second-degree murder, sodomy, sex abuse, abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence, strangulation and a probation violation.
Bend is in central Oregon, about 130 miles east of Eugene.
