Pendleton Police Investigating Homicide

Posted: Updated:

Pendleton, OR - Police in Pendleton are trying to figure out who killed a woman who was found dead in a motel room Tuesday.

The body of 19-year old Amyjane Brandhagen was found in a guest room at the Travelodge Motel on Dorion Avenue, right across from city hall.

The major crimes team was called in to collect evidence.  But the District Attorney's office says they don't have a lot of information about a possible motive, or the identity of the person responsible.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at the Medical Examiner's office in Portland.  The case is being actively investigated as a homicide.
