THE BACKSTORY:

PULLMAN – Pullman Police Detectives arrested Joshua W. Nantz in connection with the David Warner assault that occurred on March 30, 2013. This arrest follows the arrest of Madeline Fouts earlier in the day.

Nantz came to the Pullman Police Department at approximately 7:30 pm at the request of detectives and was arrested for Assault First Degree, a Class A felony. Nantz is a 23-year-old male Washington State University (WSU) student and Pullman resident, birth date 02/06/90.

An anonymous tip received over this past weekend led to the arrest of Fouts and Nantz. After booking, Nantz will be transported to the Whitman County Jail and will likely appear tomorrow before a judge in Whitman County Superior Court in Colfax.

Madeline Fouts was released from custody at about 6:00 pm today. Fouts had been arrested
for Rendering Criminal Assistance and Providing False Statements to a Public Servant. Fouts
is cooperating with investigators and was not directly involved in the physical assault of Mr.
Warner. She is not considered a danger to the community.

Pullman detectives continue to follow leads on the remaining two male suspects and are
aggressively following those leads at this time. Pullman Police are still asking for any
witnesses to the assault to contact the Pullman Police Department at (509) 334-0802.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.

    Man's beaten body found floating Nine Mile dam in 1989 yet to be identified

    Thursday, August 16 2018 2:42 AM EDT2018-08-16 06:42:21 GMT

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It was July of 1989. A man's beaten body was found floating near the Nine Mile dam. Years and years have passed with no leads on the case. That's because investigators do not have the most crucial piece of evidence, his name. The man was someone's son, likely a friend, a neighbor. Someone out there has to be wondering what happened to him.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - The skies above Eastern Washington lakes and rivers have been a little busier these days. With wildfire season raging on, emergency crews have relied on air attacks from planes that scoop water. They're called fire bosses and you won't want to be in between them and the water when a fire is nearby. "It's extremely dangerous and they are an emergency vehicle," said Howard Platter of Newman Lake.
