COURT DOCUMENTS: Murder Suspect Was Skipping Town

Suspect Taylor Wolf Suspect Taylor Wolf

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – Recently unsealed court documents paint a chilling picture of Spokane County's first murder investigation of the year and suggest the suspects in the case threatened to kill witnesses before trying to skip town.

Taylor Wolf, Justice Sims and Breeanna Sims were arrested in the death of Nicholas Thoreson, a Cheney man found dead in the trunk of his burning car last week.

Prosecutors recently unsealed the probable cause affidavits which outlines the case law enforcement has built against the suspects.

Detectives interviewed multiple friends and family members, several of whom are quoted in the documents.

One of Wolf's neighbors reportedly told police that Wolf confessed to the killing.  According to the document, "Taylor made statements that he had snapped and killed someone" and that he "needed to get to Lewiston." 

After telling the neighbor what happened, Wolf reportedly threatened to kill the neighbor if he told anyone.

Members of the SWAT team arrested Wolf as he was getting into a cab outside a Spokane Valley apartment complex last week. 

Detectives interviewed the cab driver who said Wolf wanted to go to the Greyhound bus terminal in Spokane.

Justice Sims and his sister, Breeanna, were arrested the next day.

Detectives placed the pair under surveillance and followed Breeanna to a field near the area where Thoreson's body was found.

Authorities arrested her after finding two weapons, including a shotgun, in the field.  Authorities believe one of the guns is the murder weapon.  The medical examiner had previously ruled Thoreson's died from a gunshot wound to the head.

The documents also detail several interviews with people who talked to Justice and Breeanna the day after the murder.

Justice reportedly claimed he stabbed somebody and was planning more killings.

Justice had a list of people that he wanted to kill and now that he had started, he didn't want to stop, according to one interview conducted by the Sheriff's Office.

The friend told detectives that Justice planned on robbing a bank but needed guns, so he was sending his sister to retrieve them from a field.

Authorities seized several items containing insignias from the Hell's Angel's biker gang, but detectives have not tied any suspects or the victim to gang activity.  Authorities are still investigating whether any participants are gang members.

A motive for the murder remains under investigation, according to Lt. Steve Barieri.
