Man Arrested After 5 Found Dead in Northern Nevada

Posted: Updated:

FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) -- A 25-year-old person of interest has been arrested after five people were found dead in one morning in northern Nevada.

Lyon County officials say Jeremiah Bean was arrested on suspicion of burglary after he was found with items from one of the crime scenes. Detectives believe all the killings are connected, including one at the exit for the Mustang Ranch brothel.

A married couple was found dead in a Fernley home Monday about 30 miles east of Reno and another dead man and woman were discovered a few blocks away.

Police determined those deaths apparently are tied to a fifth victim who was found in a ditch along the highway exit for the infamous brothel just east of Reno.

Lyon County Undersheriff Albert Torres told KRNV-TV that investigators think all five killings are connected.

KOLO-TV reported Tuesday one suspect had been arrested in connection with the case but no details have been released.
