Deputies: Man believed girlfriend was dead after he beat her with a piece of wood

OREGON — Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Jan. 9, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported domestic disturbance at a residence on the 68300 block of E. Twinberry Loop in Welches.

The suspect — William Joseph Bouley, 61 — had reportedly severely beaten the victim with a piece of wood during an argument.

Initial reports suggest that Bouley believed he had beaten the victim to death, and was threatening to kill himself; deputies and responding Sandy Fire paramedics would quickly learn the victim was instead severely injured.

Both Bouley and the victim — his girlfriend — live at the residence.

Deputies arrived at the scene and established a perimeter. Deputies contacted Bouley by phone, and instructed him to walk outside. He complied, and was taken into custody by deputies on the south side of the residence.

Deputies quickly located the victim on a couch in the residence, and responding paramedics went to work. The victim had a severe head wound, and was conscious but disoriented while being treated at the scene. She was transported to an area hospital with traumatic injuries.

Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) responded to the scene to collect and process evidence and conduct interviews. Deputies also contacted witnesses who had seen the couple earlier in the evening.

William Bouley was transported to Clackamas County Jail and booked on a charge of Attempted Murder. He is being held without bail.
