Press Release – Arrests Made in Bridgeport Double Homicide

In the early morning of November 9, 2020, a snowplow driver discovered two bodies on the shoulder of Highway 395, approximately 10 miles north of Bridgeport. The victims, identified as William and Yesenia Larsen, husband and wife, from Burbank, California, had no known connection to Mono County. Due to the unusual circumstances, the deaths were investigated as a double homicide.

Bradley Kohorst was taken into custody in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday, March 22, 2021

Cory Spurlock, age 33, arrested for double-homicide

A thorough investigation ensued, which led our Investigators to the determination that several former business associates of the victims were connected to the deaths. The investigation was presented to the Mono County District Attorney’s Office on March 18, 2021, for consideration of filing charges for the deaths of William and Yesenia Larsen. The District Attorney’s Office issued arrest warrants for: Bradley Kohorst, age 35; Cory Spurlock, age 33; and Orit Oged, age 32. Kohorst, Spurlock and Oged all reside in Missoula, Montana.

Bradley Kohorst was taken into custody in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday, March 22, 2021. Cory Spurlock and Orit Oged were arrested in Missoula, Montana, on Thursday, March 25, 2021. All three remain in custody awaiting extradition to Mono County.

The interagency back patting never sits well with me. Just do the jobs you’re paid to do.

I served with Kohorst in Iraq. He and Larsen were close friends. I’m very surprised by this.

There must be a very interesting story behind this. I appreciate all the work done to find the suspects, and realize they are not convicted…yet.

You should be more careful in assuming guilt. From what I’ve read here it sounds like arrest warrants were issued not that they were tried and convicted. Typical of Sierra wave

Sierra Wave clearly states that it’s an Official Press Release from the Mono County Sheriff’s Office. Sierra Wave News makes no presumption of guilt…or innocence. It seems you are the one jumping to a conclusion. Perhaps your complaint would better be directed towards the Mono County Sheriff Office?
