King County Sheriff's investigators confimed Saturday they are looking into the possible slaying of an elderly couple in their Renton home, and are seeking the couple's missing Chrysler in connection with the deaths.
The bodies of the couple--an 80-year-old man and his wife, 82--were found by their daughter at 7 p.m. Saturday, said Cindi West, spokeswoman for the sheriff's deparment.
The couple lived on the 16200 block of 145th Ave. S.E., in the Fairwood Greens Community of the Fairwood Golf and Country Club.
"Another relative had stopped by around noon (Saturday)," West said. "When the couple didn't answer the door, this person called the daughter, who came over around 7."
She also knocked and didn't get an answer. When she let herself in, she found the couple already dead. West said investigators didn't have many additional details except that the deaths are considered "suspicious" and the couple's Chrysler is missing.
The King County Sheriff's Office asks that anyone who sees a red, 2001 Chrysler 300, Washington license plate 046-XXU, please call 911.
West said the couple was last seen alive at 10 p.m. Friday night. Investigators did not yet reveal a cause of death.
