Investigators believe the woman had been killed at another location and her body had been dumped at the location by the suspects. Surveillance images from a nearby residence showed two sets of vehicle headlights leaving the scene shortly after they had attempted to set her body on fire.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., #PCSD detectives were contacted by the Auburn Police Department regarding a suspicious vehicle that was found abandoned in the 2000 block of 63rd St. SE in Auburn.

On the morning of Wednesday October 25, 2017, Pierce County Sheriff’s detectives served a search warrant at a residence in the 23200 block of 105th Ave. SE in Kent; the residence being searched was of the registered owner of the abandoned vehicle. Inside the residence, detectives located a 4 month old baby girl abandoned in her crib; the house was otherwise unoccupied.
