The Seattle Times reports that an unusual diamond that once belonged to Burien resident Robert Wykel lead to the arrest of Myron Clark Wynn in Wykel’s 1996 murder.

Wynn is now being held on $1 million bail pending extradition proceedings to return him to King County from Texas.

According to the Times:

Wykel disappeared in February 1996 after telling friends he was going to check out a vintage Thunderbird, according to court documents. Wykel supplemented his retirement income by restoring classic cars, charging papers said, and he withdrew $5,200 cash from the bank.

Wykel was never seen again.

His friends and daughter long suspected Wynn, a man who befriended Wykel over breakfast at a McDonald’s restaurant in Burien. Wykel was last seen with him at Mother Nature’s Acres, a resort in Thurston County owned by Wynn’s sister, court documents said.

Wykel’s car was found abandoned in a Burien park-and-ride lot.
