CRIME BLOTTER: Burglary suspect ends up dead; young man shot in face…


The SeaTac Police Department recently released the following crime news:

Residential Burglary
At about 1:45 AM on Friday, October 2 a family living in the area of S. 140th Street and 29th Avenue S. awoke to find a burglar in their home, attempting to steal items. Family members chased the burglar out of the house and then returned to advise police where he was last seen. When SeaTac Police and King County Sheriffs Officers arrived, they found the burglar slumped against a wall in a nearby yard. He did not obey their commands but did not resist being handcuffed. Once cuffed, officers realized the man was not breathing – they removed the cuffs, started CPR and called for medics, but he was pronounced dead. Medical Examiners noted that there were no indications of force or injury to the suspect; they will investigate further.

Shooting
At about 12:30 AM on Saturday, October 3 officers responded to the 76 gas station at S. 168th Street and International Blvd. where a young man was found with a bloody face, unable to talk. Police learned that he had been shot in the face at a different location and weren’t able to determine where the shooting occurred, if there were witnesses or a motive. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center where he remains in critical condition and unable to communicate. The investigation continues.

Suspicious Death
At about 3:00 AM on Saturday, October 3, a SeaTac Officer was flagged down by a woman who told him that there may be a body around the drive-thru of the Chase Bank at S. 184th Street and International Blvd. The woman had heard this from two men at a bus stop. The officer found a male body in a small crawl space under the pavement of the drive-thru. Medical Examiners told the officer that there were no signs of trauma and that it looked like the body had been there for about a week. Cause of death remains unknown, pending autopsy and toxicology reports.
