Reward Upped For Murder Victim Found Near Burien
The mother of a Lynnwood woman whose body was found near Burien two years ago announced that she is increasing the cash reward to $36,000 for information that leads to an arrest in her daughter’s case.
Nicole Pietz, 32, was found strangled Feb. 6, 2006, in a wooded area near South 114th and Des Moines Memorial Drive (see map below).
Her 2003 Volkswagen Jetta was found abandoned two weeks later in the University District in Seattle.
The King County Sheriff’s Office is investigating and hasn’t publicly identified any suspects.
Gail Schneider, mother of Pietz, said at a new conference that she hopes increasing the reward from $26,000 will reach the conscience of someone who might have information about the slaying or who might have been an accomplice.
