CONTACTS: Courtney O’Keefe, Director of Communications, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Courtney.O’Keefe@snoco.org, 425-388-3865, Media line: 425-249-6263
MARYSVILLE, Wash. – Around 8:30 p.m. Friday, February 18, deputies responded to reports of a stabbing at a hotel in the 6300 block of 33rd Ave NE. Upon arrival, deputies located the victim, a 62-year-old Stanwood man, with multiple stab wounds to his torso. The victim was transported by aid with life-threatening injuries. He is expected to survive.
The suspect, a 57-year-old Lynnwood man, became unconscious in the hallway. Deputies attempted lifesaving measures while aid units were responding to the scene. Aid crews took over CPR but were unable to revive the suspect. The 57-year-old was pronounced deceased at the scene.
During the investigation, Major Crimes Unit (MCU) detectives learned the 57-year-old suspect was banging on the victim’s hotel room door. When the 62-year-old victim opened the door, the suspect began stabbing him. The fight moved into the hallway and the victim’s 43-year-old girlfriend became involved. The victim and his girlfriend disarmed the suspect and held him on the ground until law enforcement arrived.
At this time, it does not appear the parties are known to each other. MCU detectives are working to investigate what led up to the altercation. No arrests have been made.
Positive identification of the decedent, as well as cause and manner of death, will come from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
This is an active investigation.
