Bend Man Arrested, Suspected of Murdering Two Teenagers

At 11:16 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 17, Bend Police were called to a home in the 20000 block of Mount Faith Place in Bend. The homeowner reported having found a dead body in the garage. When police arrived, they entered the home and found one of the victims dead in the garage of the home. They secured the scene until detectives could arrive.

An initial investigation found that on Tuesday, Aug. 16, the victims and 41-year-old Wesley Abel Brady were doing work around the house for the homeowner. While drinking alcohol at the Mount Faith Place home later that evening, Hernandez and Brady got into a physical altercation, and Brady murdered both Pastorino and Hernandez. He then placed their bodies in the home’s garage before eventually traveling to a property in Christmas Valley. 

While police were at the scene, Brady arrived in the area of the home. He was detained and remains in custody.

The victims had been reported missing earlier in the day by a concerned family member.
