Suspect Admits To Killing Spokane Man; Says He Used An Electrical Cord

SPOKANE, Wash. - A man has confessed to killing Frazier Hanel of Spokane. 27-year-old Ryan D. Corkery confessed to killing Hanel with an electrical cord. Corkery said he snapped after being molested by Hanel years ago. The murder happened in Hanel's home on South Player Dr. near Hangman Valley Golf Course.

27-year-old Ryan D. Corkery was arrested on probable cause for First-Degree Murder and First-Degree Arson. The suspect was located and taken into custody at a Spokane Valley motel on North Hutchinson Road in Spokane Valley.

Corkery was considered a person of interest following discovery of the fire and death of William Frazier Hanel. Detectives believed he might be driving Hanel's Jeep Wagoneer which was located Wednesday morning at the Linger Longer Lounge near the motel.

Corkery had an outstanding Dept. of Corrections escape warrant, and members of the violent offender task force had been tracking him off and on prior to the fire.

Investigators from Spokane City, Spokane County Fire District 8 and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives continue investigation into the arson fire.
