20-year-old woman’s murder charge shocks ex-Bend classmates

BEND, Ore. (AP) — Former students at Bend-La Pine Schools say they are shocked that a woman they were classmates with is accused of killing another woman and kidnapping her 8-year-old daughter in Hawaii.

The Bend Bulletin reported Saturday that former classmates of 20-year-old Hailey Dandurand remember her as unassuming and kind, although they say a theme of self-isolation had grown over time. Dandurand and her boyfriend, 23-year-old Stephen Brown, have pleaded not guilty to allegations that they killed Telma Boinville on Dec. 7 at a vacation rental house on Oahu and then tied up her daughter.

Court documents outline a gruesome crime scene including a bloodied hammer, knife and mallet. Boinville was found to have died from blunt force injuries to her head.

Dandurand and Brown were arrested near Boinville’s vehicle at the Town Center of Mililani.
