High school friend arrested in case of Blaze Bernstein, whose body was found this week in a Lake Forest park
SANTA ANA – A suspect has been arrested in the case involving University of Pennsylvania sophomore Blaze Bernstein, whose body was found Tuesday in a Foothill Ranch park.
Bernstein, a pre-med student, had disappeared a week earlier after driving with a friend to a Foothill Ranch park. The friend appeared nervous while being interviewed by sheriff’s investigators, saying the 19-year-old Bernstein disappeared into the park after exiting the vehicle and didn’t see him again.
Around 1:15 p.m., two sheriff’s investigators brought the handcuffed man to the Sheriff’s Department headquarters.
Officials say they will talk about the case later this afternoon with the media.
