Skooter reporting 04/24/12
Inside a burning house, two women found dead Sunday morning had been gunned down before the fire was set in what the King County sheriff described as a crime of "almost unbelievable evil."
Investigators are still looking for Peter A. Keller, 41, who lives in the house where the women were found. Keller is considered a "person of interest" and has not been named as a suspect, said King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West. She said there is a possibility that Keller is also a victim somewhere but he has not been ruled out as a suspect.
Keller has not been found since the Sunday morning blaze at the house that he shared with his wife and daughter. King County Sheriff Steve Strachan said, they have two women who have been shot and killed, weapons are missing and they were unable to contact Keller. They want to talk to him to find out if he has any part in this case.
Also found shot to death inside the house were a dog and a cat, Strachan said. Seven gasoline containers were also found at the home Monday by arson investigators and crews responding to the blaze.
Firefighters had a hard time entering the home near North Bend because the front door was barricaded by a couch and chair. The entry seemed to be intentionally blockaded said King Country sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West. On the contrary the family friends later told investigators a furniture arrangement blocked the door and the family usually used a side door.
The sheriff's office found out that there was no history of domestic violence at the home. It was reported that Keller is a enthusiastic outdoorsman who love to hike the area around North Bend. So anyone who happen to see Keller call 911.
