UPDATE: Boulevard Park Man’s House Burglarized As He Lay Dead On Floor
Earlier today we reported about the King County Sheriff’s Office investigating the death of a man in his 70s in the 12600 block of Des Moines Memorial Drive in the Boulevard Park area.
Upon further investigation, police say that the man had his house burglarized and many of his possessions stolen after he died – in fact, as he lay dead on the floor.
And the suspects stole his two cars as well.
The victim lived alone, and was last seen by family members about two weeks ago. When relatives didn’t hear from him, they came by about 12:45 p.m. Friday (June 24) and found him dead on the floor, covered by a blanket. The house was ransacked.
The cause of death was not immediately apparent. Detectives believe the items were stolen after the man died.
In addition, the man’s two cars are missing. The help of the public is needed to find the vehicles:
- 2002 Dodge Ram Pick-up, blue, license B40611K (Washington)
- 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser, gold, license 515TPM (Washington)
If anyone sees these either of these cars or knows anything about the burglary, they are asked to the call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours) or 9-1-1.
