Two women whose bodies were found in a fire at their home near North Bend had been shot to death, the King County Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday.
Detectives were still trying to find Peter A. Keller, 41, who lives in the house where the women were found. Keller is considered a “person of interest,” sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said.
Keller has been unaccounted for since the Sunday morning fire at the house that he shared with his wife and daughter.
“We have two victims who have been shot and killed, weapons are missing from the house, and we have not been able to contact Keller,” King County Sheriff Steve Strachan said.“We want to talk to him to see if he had any involvement.”
Keller has no known history of violence, West said.
The identities of the two women had not been released.
The family car was found hours after the fire elsewhere in North Bend.
