Man Arrested, Accused in Flinn Springs Homicide

Bren Fisher suffered unspecified injuries to his upper body, homicide investigators said

An arrest has been made in the killing of an East County man who was found dead last week inside his Flinn Springs home. 

Bren Fisher, 64, was found dead Jan. 7 inside his home on Bridon Road, north of Interstate 8 near the Harbison Canyon/ Dunbar Lane exit.

There were visible signs of trauma to Fisher’s body, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputies. An autopsy revealed Fisher died of blunt force trauma.

Deputies say they’ve arrested Rory Patrick Fay, 31, on allegations of murder. Fay was in the San Diego Central Jail on unrelated charges at the time of his arrest.

One of the victim’s friends told NBC 7 Fisher was a wonderful man who enjoyed playing guitar. Neighbors said he would often wave to them as he drove by in his truck in the rural area.
