Lebanon man arrested near Mexico border in double-homicide


A man from Lebanon, Oregon was arrested Sunday in Southern California near the Mexico border in connection with a weekend double-homicide in Linn County, sheriff’s deputies said.

Brenton Wade Richmond, 48, is facing two counts of aggravated murder for the deaths of Tammy Lee Hopper, 42, and Eric Cody Jacobs, 48, of Independence.

Hopper and Jacobs were found dead Saturday morning at a home on Shannon Place in Lebanon. The sheriff’s office said they died from “apparent homicidal violence.” Hopper lived at the home, according to deputies.

Investigators said they worked through the night Saturday to process the crime scene and identified Richmond as the suspect.

Authorities continue to investigate and asks anyone with additional information to call Detective John Lovik II at 541-967-3911.
