PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - The Clallam County sheriff says a man suspected of shooting two sex offenders to death left a note saying he hated sex offenders and "it had to be done."
Sheriff Bill Benedict says investigators believe Patrick Drum shot Gary Lee Blanton on Saturday night at a home Drum was renting near Sequim. Blanton was renting a room in the home.
Benedict says Drum then drove to the home of Jerry Wayne Ray in the nearby Agnew area where he was killed.
The sheriff says Drum abandoned a rental car and reports of a suspicious man in the area Sunday led deputies to respond. The note in the car led to the victims and identified Drum as a suspect.
He was tracked and arrested in a wooded area.
