Detectives investigate apparent double murder-suicide in Sammamish


(Sammamish) King County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating what appears to be a double murder-and suicide at a Sammamish home. (C17056630)


Just after 7pm deputies responded to a house in the 24000 block of NE 30 Pl to check the welfare of a man who did not show up for an appointment earlier in the day.   When deputies arrived they found the house locked but could see three bodies lying on the floor through an open window.

Deputies forced entry into the house and discovered two adult men and an adult woman dead on the floor.  Deputies also found a gun near the bodies.   A couple and their adult son live at the house and are believed to be the deceased.

The King County Medical Examiner will determine cause and manner of death and will make positive identifications before releasing the names of the deceased.

No further information is available at this time.
