FAIRVIEW, Ore. -- The woman found murdered at Fairview's Blue Lake Park had just met her killer for the first time outside a Portland nightclub hours before she died, according to court documents released Thursday.

Tiffany Jenks, 35, was found at the entrance to the park on the morning of Oct. 8. She had died hours earlier from a gunshot wound to the head.

Three people, 38-year-old Joshua Robinett, 40-year-old Michelle Karine Worden-Brosey and 25-year-old Daniel Bruynell, were arrested in connection with her death Thursday.

Documents released Friday afternoon show that the three suspects were seen on a surveillance camera introducing themselves to Jenks outside the Falco nightclub just after midnight October 8.

The three drank together at several clubs in the immediate area before leaving for the secluded area around Blue Lake Park, reportedly to do some target shooting with a .357 caliber revolver, according to the probable cause affidavits.

The suspects said Jenks became agitated and started yelling at them when they stopped the car.

Bruynell told detectives that Worden-Brosey handed him the gun and told him to shoot Jenks. He said he did so and was congratulated by the other two, the affidavits show.

He then left Jenks' body and drove away, staying at a hotel overnight with Robinett and Worden-Brosey and taking a bus home to California the following morning, detectives said.

Worden-Brosey and Robinett had a different story. They claimed they had walked away to have sex and were not near Bruynell or Jenks at the time of the shooting. Worden-Brosey said she heard the gunshot and that Robinett had seen the muzzle flash.

Both disputed Bruynell's claim that they encouraged him to shoot Jenks, telling detectives they were not there and did not know what had happened to her.

But they both said they returned to the car and didn't ask where Jenks was when Bruynell drove away without her.

A woman called police a few hours later to say she found Tiffany Jenks lying in the grass.

Police saw the suspects on the surveillance video and later found out that one of the bars they visited had swiped their drivers' licenses and kept records of their visit, which the bar does with all its patrons.

Bruynell's charges were pending while he awaited extradition back from California. Robinett and Worden-Brosey were charged with hindering prosecution and conspiracy to commit murder. They were also charged with obliterating the serial number of the gun used in Jenks' death.
