Who is Michael Dudley? (Landlord Arrested suspicion of fatally shooting Austin Wenner and Jessica Lewis) Biography, Wiki
Police have made an arrest in the murders of two people whose remains were found stuffed into suitcases on a beach in West Seattle.
As KING-5 reports, Michael Dudley, 62, was arrested last week on suspicion of fatally shooting Austin Wenner, 27, and Jessica Lewis, 35.
In June, teens filming a TikTok video at Seattle’s Duwamish Head reportedly discovered a suitcase and opened it to find a plastic bag inside. After witnesses contacted the police, investigators confirmed that there were human remains inside the bags and found another bag of debris in the water.
Autopsies determined that Wenner had been shot in the torso and Lewis had been shot multiple times, according to KOMO News.
KING-5 received court documents showing that they rented a room from Dudley at the victims’ home, and a rent dispute preceded the apparent double murder.
Burien Police reportedly responded to the house 10 days before the bodies were found, after neighbors reported they heard shouting and gunfire. However, Dudley did not answer the door and the police apparently left the scene.
The suspect is being held on $ 5 million bail.
