Mustang Exit off of I-80


Jeremiah Bean, 25, has been arrested as a person of interest in the 5 homicides in the Fernley, Nevada, community.

A body found near the Mustang exit on Interstate 80 around 6:00 a.m. Monday has been confirmed as linked to the four homicides in Fernley, Nevada.  In total, there were five deaths in the area on Monday May 13.

Fernley, Nevada, the sleepy bedroom community approximately 30 miles east of Reno, suffered an incredible blow after Monday’s events when detectives confirmed four homicides in two separate homes with four dead.  The day became worse when the crime became linked to the discovery of another body in a neighboring county approximately 15 miles away.

One of the homes, on Jessica Lane, has fire damage from arson.  The other home is around the corner on Tamsen Road.

Lyon County sheriff’s detectives have confirmed they are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman dead at each of the two residences; they are considering it a homicide investigation.

Jeremiah Bean Mugshot – May 13, 2013

Bean is being held for $50,000 bail on burglary charges after being caught at a neighboring home on Tamsen Road; he was tackled by officers and arrested.

Three of the victim’s names have been released; Robert and Dorothy Pape, 84, lived at Jessica Lane, and Angie Duff, 67, Tamsen Lane.  The other Tamsen Lane victim and the man found at the Mustang exit on I-80 have not been identified, pending notification of relatives.  Authorities have not yet released a cause of death.

Fernley is a quiet town of fewer than 20,000 residents as of the 2010 census.  It is home to the Amazon.com warehouse and is not far from the Fallon Naval Air Station.

Fallon was once the center of a controversial children’s cancer cluster that still remains undetermined.

Local news stations will be covering the story with updated details as authorities provide information.

Four agencies are now working together on the investigation: The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, the Nevada State Fire Marshal’s Office, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, and the North Lyon County Fire Department.

Officials are still looking for other suspects and urges area residents to use caution when going about their day.

Police are asking for help in solving the details of this crime and Secret Witness has established a reward for anyone who has information helping to solve the case.  If you have information, call the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office at 775.463.6620.
