A 20-year-old woman suspected in a high-profile murder of a woman at a vacation rental on Hawaii’s North Shore has a direct connection to Central Oregon.

Hailey Kai Dandurand — accused of killing the 51-year-old woman Thursday with her boyfriend — grew up in Bend.

Dandurand was the subject of two missing person reports as a runaway juvenile, according to Bend Police.

Bulletin archives show Dandurand attended High Lakes Elementary School in Bend, where in fifth grade she was recognized at the Parent Teacher Association Reflections Student Art Show for an essay titled “I Can Make a Difference.”

Dandurand attended Cascade Middle School in Bend and competed in track and field, according to online athletic records.

Dandurand and her boyfriend, Stephen Brown, 23, have been charged with second-degree murder for the death of Telma Boinville in Pupukea, Hawaii, on Thursday. Dandurand was also charged with first-degree burglary, kidnapping and unauthorized possession of confidential personal information.

Boinville’s body was found Thursday inside the vacation rental where she had been working as a housekeeper.

Her 8-year-old daughter was found alive, bound and with her mouth duct-taped upstairs, according to media reports. Boinville was beaten with a baseball bat, according to court documents.

Dandurand and Brown reportedly stole Boinville’s truck and were arrested Thursday night near a Walmart in Mililani, Hawaii, according to court documents.

While being arrested, Dandurand said to officers, “Can you just pull your gun out and shoot me in the head, my life is over after today,” court documents show.

Dandurand’s bail is set at $500,000, while Brown is in custody on $1 million bail.
