MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police are asking for the public's help in locating a vehicle that is associated with their investigation of the homicide reported on the morning of Jan. 25.
Police are searching for a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado, with a champagne-colored paint job and the Washington license plate number B03681A. This vehicle belonged to the elderly victim of the homicide and has been entered into the system as stolen.
"If located, we are considering the occupants as being armed and dangerous, and ask that the public do not try to intervene," Marysville Police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said. "We simply want them to call 911 to report the location of the vehicle."
The 82-year-old resident of an RV park in the 9800 block of State Avenue was found dead on the morning of Jan. 25 of a suspected homicide.
Marysville Police received a call from the victim's grandson shortly after 3 a.m., when the grandson checked in on the victim after not having heard from him for a couple of days.
Lamoureux reported that officers who arrived on the scene looked inside the victim's RV and saw signs of a likely homicide.
As of 9:30 a.m., Marysville Police detectives were on the scene and had secured a search warrant to enter the RV with technicians from the Washington State Patrol's crime lab.
"They haven't even been inside yet," Lamoureux said shortly after 9:30 a.m. "I think they'll be in there all day, although even that timeline can change, depending on what they find inside. All these unknowns can only be revealed through investigation."
Those closest thing to a similar previous incident that Lamoureux could recall in that area was an elderly woman who died by the nearby creek four to five years ago, but the police investigation concluded she had fallen and ruled out foul play.
