Murder Victim Identified

The Hood River County Sheriff’s Department says Wendy Hildreth, 48, of Hood River, is the woman whose body was found at The Family Man Staging Area on Monday. Investigators believe she died of blunt force trauma at the hands of her husband, Michael Hildreth, 58. He then committed suicide at their home. Police haven’t said if Wendy was killed at the recreation area or if her body was dumped there. Police said they found evidence of blood at the couple’s home. The couple was in the process of getting divorced, and Wendy recently sought a restraining order against Michael, according to a release from Hood River County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Sergeant Pete Hughes.
