Victims ID'd in Nevada slayings

Jeremiah Bean, 25, has been arrested as a person of interest after five people were found dead in one morning in northern Nevada.

Police identified three of five people killed in a brutal flurry Monday that has terrified a small western Nevada town.

Robert Pape, 84, his wife, Dorothy, 84, and Angie Duff, 67, were among the victims discovered in Fernley, Nev., NBC's Reno affiliate KRNV reported.

Another male victim found in Duff's residence and a body found in a ditch near an interstate exit for an infamous brothel just outside of Reno have yet to be identified. Autopsy results into the causes of death are pending, police said.

Lyon County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday announced that Jeremiah Bean, 25, was arrested on suspicion of burglary after authorities caught him with items from the Pape's home.

Authorities believe all five deaths are connected, KRNV reported.

Bean was found when a neighbor near the first crime scene called the police about a man hiding in his garage, officials said.

He attempted to run from police, but was quickly surrounded by authorities, officials said.

Bean is being held on $50,000 bail.
