Bend Murder Victim's Car Found In Southern Oregon

BEND, OR -- Bend Police say the SUV belonging to a local murder victim was found in southern Oregon. The vehicle was unoccupied and detectives are en route to collect evidence. 

Authorities say 28-year-old Evelyn Jeanette Weaver was found Tuesday morning inside her house on NW Hill Street. BPD's Sheila Miller tells KBND Weaver lived alone. Detectives continue to gather evidence, including collecting surveillance footage from neighbors. "If there are people who we haven’t been in touch with yet, who were with or encountered Ms. Weaver in the days before her body was discovered - so, between July 13th and July 18th - we’re asking people to contact the non-emergency dispatch line," says Miller, "The Oregon State Police forensics lab is on scene, and we expect to remain on-scene through at least Friday."

Miller would not comment on any possible suspects, citing the ongoing investigation.
