Former Plumas residents arrested in 2018 murder case

Two former Plumas County residents were arrested Dec. 16, 2021 in connection with the 2018 murder of Jack Hasbrouck in Klamath County, Oregon.

According to the Oregon State Police, Hasbrouck’s body was discovered in a wooded area north of Beatty, Oregon, on March 21, 2018.  It was apparent he had died as the result of homicidal violence.  The Klamath County Major Crime Team was activated to investigate the murder.

Investigators followed up on multiple leads until they developed suspects. In late November of this year, a Klamath County Grand Jury indicted Jeremy Milton Lacy (43) and Eileen Gay Lacy (51), a married couple, for the murder of Hasbrouck. (They were former residents of Taylorsville and Quincy.)

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Klamath County Major Crime Team with determining Jeremy and Eileen Lacy were living near Willow Creek, California, in Humboldt County.


On Dec. 16, 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.  They were transported to the Humboldt County Jail where they were lodged on the warrants.

The Klamath County Major Crime Team consists of the Oregon State Police, the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office, the Klamath Falls City Police Department, Klamath County Community Corrections, and the Klamath County District Attorney’s Office.

The Klamath County Major Crime Team expressed their gratitude to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol for their assistance in this long and difficult investigation.
