CRIME STOPPERS: Reward Targets Vehicular Homicide Suspect

KHQ.COM - Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information that leads to the capture of a fugitive wanted for Vehicular Homicide.

On February 10th of this year, Lyle D. Eutsler was driving eastbound on Magnesium Road minutes before 11 p.m.  Another motorist he passed estimated his speed at double the 35 mph limit.

At an S-curve just prior to Magnesium's intersection with Market, Eutsler's red Mazda MX6 left the roadway and crashed into a large pine tree.  When deputies and troopers arrived at the scene, they saw Eutsler dragging himself away from the driver's door and two female passengers trapped inside the crumpled car.

One, a 42-year-old Spokane woman, died from her injuries about 45 minutes later.  An investigation of the crash indicated the Mazda was traveling between 56 and 59 mph before leaving the roadway. 

Toxicology tests revealed that Eutsler's blood alcohol level was above the state limit and that he had recently consumed marijuana.

Based upon Eutsler's drug and alcohol consumption prior to the crash, and his reckless driving which resulted in the crash and the death of his passenger, a warrant charging him with Vehicular Homicide was issued.

Detectives believe Lyle Eutsler might have fled the Spokane area, despite having both family and friends here.  He is believed to be driving a black 1987 Ford Thunderbird with Washington license plate ABP4206.  He may be "couch hopping" with friends and selling plasma for income.

Eutsler's parents live in the 1000 block of East Olympic.  He has a best friend that lives on Wabash somewhere near the Northtown Mall, and his wife (possibly ex-wife) lives in the 7100 block of East Ninth in Spokane Valley.

Anyone with information regarding Lyle Eutsler's whereabouts is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers immediately.

Crime Stoppers fugitives are wanted criminal suspects who are avoiding capture by police.  This makes them potentially dangerous, and they should only be contacted by law enforcement professionals. 

Persons with information regarding this fugitive's whereabouts should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.

Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect the cash fugitive reward.
