Friend With Dirt Under Nails Arrested in Student's Death

Details Emerge in Missing OC Teens Homicide Case

Woodward left and then returned at 4 a.m.to search again but didn't find Bernstein, investigators said. Later, they drove to Borrego Park to meet with another friend from high school, Woodward told detectives.

Share this article: The body of Blaze Bernstein, a 19-year-old college student, was found in brush surrounding Foothill Ranch Park.

The friend said he went with Bernstein to a neighborhood park in the city of Lake Forest on January 2 to meet up with the victim's girlfriend but stayed in the auto, the Orange County sheriff's investigator wrote in the document.

"We do believe Mr". Bernstein's father, Gideon Bernstein, had also worked with friends of the family to conduct independent drone operations.

"With his death, a attractive light has been extinguished and we encourage you to continue to shine his light, through acts of loving kindness", the Bernstein family said in a statement read by their attorney.

Barnes, however, said that investigators believe Woodward acted alone. They asked him how his hands got so dirty and the friend said he "fell into a dirt puddle" during the sparring session.

Woodward replied, "I wouldn't fight anybody unless they attacked me".

Bernstein was visiting relatives in Orange County while on winter break from school. His wallet, glasses, credit cards and cash were in his bedroom, but the 19-year-old was nowhere to be found.

Barnes said there were inconsistencies with Woodward's account of what happened. "With his death, a attractive life has been extinguished".

"We will continue to search for justice for Blaze and his family". "Our words can not express how grateful the family is to the community here in Orange County and all over the world for expressing their love and support during the past very hard week".

"Revenge is empty", Bernstein's mother, Jeanne Pepper Bernstein, wrote on Twitter after the arrest was announced. "My only hopes are that he will never have the opportunity to hurt anyone else again and that something meaningful can come from the senseless act of Blaze's murder".

An affidavit obtained by the Orange County Register revealed that two days after Bernstein disappeared, Woodward had scratches on his hands and dirt under his fingernails. He went back to the park less than two hours later, but Bernstein was still nowhere to be found. The friend said Bernstein had complained about his grades in school and "seemed depressed but never said anything about wanting to hurt himself".

A sheriff's investigator earlier said that a friend of a Bernstein's appeared nervous while speaking with authorities and had scratched up hands and dirt under his fingernails. Inside the vehicle, officers found camping equipment, a black belt, and a large plastic bin inside.

He agreed to be further interviews at the sheriff's headquarters in Santa Ana, where his story "stayed fairly consistent".

In one interview, the friend could not recall his girlfriend's last name, the Register reported.
