All of these new details come from the Oregon Judicial Department and the court records they could offer us. The Benton County Sheriff's Office has not released any new details since a news conference Tuesday. They say this is to preserve their investigation.
"There's a lot of different aspects to it, a lot that the public doesn't know and we just can't release right now. I can tell you the Benton County Sheriff's Office is the primary investigating agency on it and we are working with other law enforcement agencies," said Lieutenant Charles Jones of the Benton County Sheriff's Office.
At this point the Benton County Sheriff's Office believes any new details about this case released to the public could compromise much of their work to track down the suspects. NBC Right Now will continue to update you on this case as that information is available.
