DEVELOPING: Arrest Made In Douglas County Murder

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Wash. - On 10/08/11 Douglas County Deputies began investigating the murder of Vickey L. Renner (Harvey) whose body was found near Bridgeport in Douglas County. 

The location of the body was also very close the City of Brewster in Okanogan County. Deputies received information that Ms. Renner lived in Omak with a male identified as Benjamin R. Bridges, 45 years of age of Okanogan. 

Douglas County investigators were able to develop information which lead to search warrants for Bridges, the residence he shared with Renner, his vehicle, and Renner's vehicle. 

On 10/11/11 a team of Douglas County Deputies along with a detective from the Brewster Police Department and the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office went to Omak to locate the suspect and execute the search warrants. 

Bridges was spotted in a vehicle at the 100 Blk. of Main Street in Omak. The vehicle was stopped by law enforcement personnel. Bridges was taken to the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office to be interviewed and his car was impounded. 

During the interview, Bridges made admissions that he had struck Vickey Renner on the head with a rock and that she had died. The event occurred sometime on or about 10/04/11 between Malott and Brewster. 

He also admitted he had taken her body into Douglas County to dispose of it. Bridges was booked into the Okanogan County Jail on Suspicious of 1st Degree Murder. The case was turned over to the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office because the death appears to have happened within their jurisdiction.

This investigation was executed in an extremely professional manner. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Okanogan County Sheriff's Office, Brewster Police Department, and Omak Police Department work well together to solve this case and bring the suspect to justice.
