Bulletin Staff Report

Bend Police are investigating a homicide at an apartment complex on the east side near Costco.

A woman was reported dead at 3:45 p.m. Saturday by a man who called 911, according to a Bend Police Department press release. The woman was at the Cedar West apartment complex, 825 NE Watt Way, but her residence is unknown at this point, Lt. Jason Maniscalco said.

Investigators are speaking to a man who was on the scene when police arrived, Maniscalco said, but they would not describe him as a suspect or a person of interest. Police don’t believe there’s any danger to the public, Maniscalco said.

Investigators are being assisted by the Oregon State Police Crime Lab and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office.

The identity of the victim and other information will be released after next of kin are notified, and as the investigation progresses, Maniscalco said. “They don’t have all the pieces yet,” he said.
