The King County Sheriffs’ Department is going to have to come clean on what they know regarding this case, if they expect the public to assist. Someone out there KNOWS who did this, but without some details provided they aren’t going to get much from the public. Were there signs of forced entry? Was the body moved from elsewhere and dumped in the garage? Was the house ramsacked and is anything missing? Was it a burglar? Does the KCSD have any theories at ALL? The truth is they haven’t provided anything publicly that might help solve the case, or even interest the public in looking at it. Where is the need for secrecy more than two weeks after the murder? I can understand withholding a detail or two, but this is bordering on ridiculous.
@Robert M. Blevins……..Considering it is an ongoing Homicide Investigation, It is important that Law Enforcement keep all specific details pertaining to the case under wraps……I am skeptical, and I am inclined to think that the murderer may be attempting to make it appear as if “it was a robbery in progress.” …… I think this murder has ties possibly to the Cooper case……..
I would urge all neighbours to report anything they may have seen, an individual, a vehicle, considering even the slightest bit of information could lead to identifiying the murderer of Mr. Earl Cossey…….this is truly an alarming scenario…….and I hope it is resolved soon……..
