The Thurston County Sheriff’s office is asking for help locating Enrique J. Lamere, a man they believe is a material witness in the Dutterow Road shooting that occurred June 22, leaving three people dead and one injured.
Lamere, who is known as “Ricky,” is 23 and is described as 5 feet 11 inches and 160 pounds, with brown eyes.
He is known to frequent the Nisqually Valley, and his last known address is 1025 Neil St. NE, No. 4, in Lacey.
Two men and one woman were shot to death early Wednesday morning in a travel trailer on Dutterow Road: 31-year-old Terron R. McGrath of Olympia, 28-year-old Jackson L. Edens of Olympia, and 36-year-old Gerald M. Berkey of Elma.
Deputies found a half-pound of methamphetamine and a baseball-sized lump of black tar heroin in the trailer, along with several thousand dollars in cash, one handgun and five rifles, Chief Deputy Dave Pearsall said.
McGrath and Edens lived in the trailer, he said.
Deputies responded to the scene when a man called 911 about 5:15 a.m. June 22 and told dispatchers he had been shot, his friends were dead, and he didn’t know where he was, according to Pearsall. Deputies used the man’s cellphone signal to track the call to a small, fifth-wheel camping trailer behind a residence on the 500 block of Dutterow Road Southeast.
The caller was found lying on the ground near Dutterow, shot in the chest, and was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. The surviving victim underwent surgery and was in stable condition.
Pearsall said Friday the survivor isn’t likely a person of interest. Detectives spoke with him Thursday and got his account of the events that unfolded, Pearsall said.
“We believe he is a victim,” Pearsall said Friday.
If you have information about Lamere’s whereabouts, contact Detective Elkins at 360-701-0000, Detective Clark at 360-549-6327 or dispatch at 360-704-2740.
