John Allen Booth Jr. John Allen Booth Jr.

SALKUM, Wash. - The Lewis County Sheriff's Department says that the suspect in a triple homicide in Lewis County may have stopped in the Spokane area Saturday afternoon.

The Spokane Police Department says that they received a phone call from the Lewis County Sheriff about Booth  possibly being in the Spokane area around 2:30pm Saturday afternoon. The Spokane Police did not receive that information until around 3:30pm. Officers searched the area but did not locate Booth or his vehicle. The Spokane Police believe that Booth stopped at the gas station to get gas and then left the area. They have no reason to believe that Booth is in Spokane at this time.

Booth may be driving a blue or teal 1988 Dodge Diplomat, 4 door, WA license number 550-YFA. Booth has a lengthy police record, including convictions for burglary, theft, attempting to elude police, criminal trespass and assault. Records show Booth got out of prison for the third time in December of 2009 and was under community supervision in the Tacoma field office.  Prior to this morning, he did not have any warrants out for his arrest.

Three people were shot to death around 2 a.m. Saturday in rural Salkum, Wash., and a fourth person was critically injured. Booth is on parole after being released from prison in December. Corrections officials say he has a long list of criminal convictions.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or Crime Check.
