Nicole White Update Number 5, Monday, June 15, 2015:
by Bruce A. Smith
John Harris, the person of interest questioned last week in the disappearance of Nicole White, has been arrested on unrelated weapons charges, according to KIRO news.
KIRO also confirms what Nicole’s sister, Melissa Nieto, had told the Mountain News last week that Harris was a convicted felon and had arrests for assault.
Detective Ed Troyer, the spokesperson for the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, has been asked to confirm this news break but has been non-responsive throughout the day on Monday.
KIRO is also reporting that the PCSD has suspended their independent search for Nicole today to allow their rescue dogs to rest. Again, this has not been confirmed.
Additionally, Jeepers Bar and Grill has announced that it is hosting a fundraiser to support the Help Find Nicole effort. Jeepers will have a local country band, Broken Trail, perform live this Saturday night, and the $5 cover charge will be donated to the cause. Also, Jeepers will offer a sirloin steak dinner special for $8.
