Coroner releases names of 3 killed

The Lewis County Coroner's Office has released the names of three people killed Saturday in a triple homicide in rural Salkum.

Killed were 52-year-old David J. West Sr. and his 16-year-old son, David J. West Jr., both of Salkum, and 50-year-old Tony E. Williams, of Mineral.

Lewis County authorities are searching for the suspected gunman, 31-year-old John Allen Booth Jr. of Onalaska, who they believe might have been trying to collect on a drug debt.

Sheriff Steve Mansfield said Sunday that Booth is considered armed and extremely dangerous.
