The 27-year-old daughter of a woman stabbed multiple times Sunday in west Olympia is now wanted in connection with that stabbing, an Olympia police spokesman said Monday.
The 57-year-old Olympia mother was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Monday after she was found unconscious with multiple stab wounds Sunday afternoon inside a dental office in the 1800 block of Cooper Point Road Southwest. She initially was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital, and later flown to Harborview.
The woman worked at the office and was found by the dentist who runs the practice, Olympia Police Lt. Sam Costello said.
“He is not believed to be involved other than finding her,” he said.
The woman’s daughter, Courtney Johnson, 27, has not been seen since the incident. She has a history of mental health issues.
Costello said they believe Johnson may have wanted to harm a family member.
Anyone with information on Johnson’s location is asked to call the Olympia Police Department detective division at 360-753-8300, and ask for either Det. Cori Schumacher or Det. Al Weinnig, or call Thurston County dispatchers at either the non-emergency line at 360-704-2740 or 911.
