Bend PD Seeks Tesla Owners' Assistance In Weaver Murder

BEND, OR -- Bend Police continue to investigate the murder of Evelyn Weaver, and are asking for more surveillance footage that could help. 

Weaver’s body was found July 18th, in her Bend home on Northwest Hill Street. Video evidence shows a man parking her 2004 silver Honda CR-V with Oregon license plate 085 BMP, in Klamath Falls three days earlier, on July 15th. 

“Our detectives are asking Tesla owners or drivers who might have been in Bend on July 14th between 3 and 5 PM to review that video,” Bend PD’s Sheila Miller tells KBND News people may not be aware their camera recorded something important, “We're trying to reach out to all these different groups and Teslas happen to have this video surveillance technology that may really help us.”

Authorities want video from these areas: 

- NW Florida Avenue between Chamberlain and Hill streets

- NW Chamberlain, Sisemore, Harriman and Hill streets between NW Florida Avenue and NW Arizona Avenue

- Southbound Bend Parkway

- SE Third Street 

Investigators have already asked the public for surveillance video taken between Bend and Klamath Falls on Highway 97. 

If you locate any video of interest, please contact Bend Police Detective Sgt. Tommy Russell at 541-312-7955 or trussell@bendoregon.gov.

Detectives have determined the cause of death, but Miller says that’s not being released.
