Detectives have located the vehicle driven by two men suspected of murdering a couple from Arlington. The red 2007 Volkswagen EOS Coupe was located yesterday near the 3700 block of W Caron St in Phoenix, Arizona.  New information obtained through the investigation indicates that 53 year-old John Blaine Reed and his brother, 49 year-old Tony Clyde Reed, are now in possession of a 2002 Gold Acura 3.2 TL (Arizona plate BNN-9968).  A plate reader hit on this license plate near Calexico, California yesterday.  The exact location of the Reed brothers is unknown, but there is reason to believe they may be trying to flee to Mexico.

Sheriff’s Office detectives are working with the Phoenix Police Department homicide unit and US Marshals in locating the Reeds.

If seen, please do not approach the Reed brothers.  Both men are convicted felons and are believed to be armed and dangerous. 

Search and Rescue teams continue to search a 23+ square mile area around the victim’s residence for the bodies of 45 year-old Patrick Shunn and his wife, 46 year-old Monique Patenaude, reported missing one week ago.

Anyone with information about this investigation should call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tipline at 425-388-3845.
