KLAMATH COUNTY, OR (December 20, 2021) - the Oregon State Police is reporting that on December 16, 2021, arrests were made in the 2018 murder of Jack Hasbrouck.
On March 21, 2018, Jack Hasbrouck’s body was discovered in a wooded area north of Beatty, OR in Klamath County. It was apparent Mr. Hasbrouck had died as the result of homicidal violence. The Klamath County Major Crime Team was activated to investigate the murder of Mr. Hasbrouck.
Investigators followed up on multiple leads until they developed suspects in the murder of Mr. Hasbrouck. In late November of 2021, a Klamath County Grand Jury indicted Jeremy Milton Lacy (43) and Eileen Gay Lacy (51), a married couple, for the murder of Mr. Hasbrouck.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Klamath County Major Crime Team with determining Jeremy and Eileen Lacy were living near Willow Creek, CA, in Humboldt County.
On December 16, 2021, a California Highway Patrol officer located Jeremy Lacy driving on Highway 299, east of Eureka. Jeremy Lacy was taken into custody without incident. Eileen Lacy was located a short time later and taken into custody without incident. The Lacy’s were transported to the Humboldt County Jail where they were lodged on the warrants.
