Woman found dead in apartment identified

A 45-year-old woman who was found dead inside her Kent apartment Tuesday has been identified as Bonnie K. Peterson.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has not released a cause of death, but investigators said she was a victim of homicidal violence.

Peterson was found by a family friend who went to check on her after Peterson failed to show up for work or answer telephone calls.

No one has been arrested, but detectives said one of Peterson’s ex-boyfriends is a prime suspect.

Anyone with information on the slaying is asked to call the Kent Police Department at 253-856-5808.
