SPOKANE, Wash. - Sources close to the investigation into the murder of Doug Carlile released brand new details to KHQ’s Alex Rozier on Thursday evening about the months that led up to Carlile’s death. Timothy Suckow is in custody because police believe he killed Carlile, but court documents released Wednesday show the detectives believe that Carlile’s business partner James Henrikson coordinated this murder for hire.

Henrikson and Carlile were two of four business partners who went in together on 640 acres of land for two million dollars, part of the North Dakota oil industry. According to court documents the men were struggling to come up with the remaining $400,000 on the $2,000,000 payment and because of that frustrations were building. Carlile and Henrikson weren’t getting along and Carlile wanted to buy Henrikson out of the company. Henrikson wasn’t happy because oil in North Dakota is potentially worth billions of dollars and the neighboring property was taking in $250,000 per day. According to the documents, that is when problems started to occur. On December 15th Doug Carlile was shot and killed in his south Spokane home and now police say they believe James Henrikson was behind everything.

NEW DETAILS:

Sources close to the investigation told KHQ’s Alex Rozier on Thursday that Henrikson spent about 30 days in the Inland Northwest in the summer of 2013. The sources said that during that time Henrikson spent every night but one at the Couer d’ Alene Resort. The sources said that the night he wasn’t at the resort Henrikson asked to stay at the home of Doug Carlile. Carlile accepted the offer for Henrikson to stay, but while he was there Henrikson asked questions that are now suspicious. The sources said Henrikson asked the Carlile’s for a full house tour. The sources said Henrikson asked if they had a security system at the Carlile’s and he obtained knowledge about the location of their hideaway key. The night of the murder there was no forced entry into the home.  According to the sources it is believed the shooter went straight to the basement. The Carlile’s had just returned from a church function and Elberta went straight upstairs when they got home. The sources said that Doug went into the kitchen to make popcorn and that is when the man police believe is Timothy Suckow came out of the basement to murder Carlile.

As of Thursday night Timothy Suckow (the suspected gunman) is the only man in custody. The FBI raided the home of James Henrikson in North Dakota on Wednesday (he was not home), but so far he is not under arrest.
