Brudos eventually pled guilty to the murders of Salee, Sprinker, and Whitney. (He was never tried for Slawson’s murder since no body had been found.) For these crimes, he received three consecutive life sentences with the possibility of parole. His wife divorced him in 1970 and left the state with their two children. She has since changed her name.
While serving his time at the Oregon State Penitentiary, Brudos tried several times to appeal his conviction,
but these efforts failed. He died of natural causes on March 28th, 2006, at the Oregon State Penitentiary Infirmary. At the time, Brudos was the longest incarcerated inmate in the history of the Oregon Department of Corrections.
