NORTH BEND, Wash. — King County sheriff and Seattle police SWAT teams are pumping more tear gas into an underground bunker in the Rattlesnake Ridge wilderness area where they believe Peter Keller, the prime suspect in the murders of his wife and daughter, remains holed up.
Tactical teams fired the first round of tear gas into the bunker near the Rattlesnake Ridge trail around 2 p.m. Friday, but Keller did not surrender. Police said the bunker appears to be well fortified and Keller is likely wearing a gas mask.
Man, that entranceway looks like something right out of Kearny’s Nuclear War Survival Skills manual. My prediction is this goes into something of a short standoff and the guy winds up putting the muzzle to the medulla and pulling the trigger. I’d be fascinated to see what they pull out of that bunker when it’s all done.
