Witness Remembers Hearing A Thud The Night Of The Murder

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - In court documents it says Mark Broadwater died after he was beaten with brass knuckles inside an apartment in the 600 block of South Adams Street. A woman who lived underneath the apartment where police say the murder happened, remembers hearing loud thuds, but did not know at the time what was happening.
 
"I heard this thud, thud, thud, 4:30 in the morning coming down the top flight," said witness Nancy Volock. "I opened up the door, I said what are you doing? I said, you taken a safe down the stairs or did you kill somebody and you're dragging a dead body down there? They say no we're just throwing out a couch."
 
However, now that she knows what was happening, Nancy says she is positive she heard the murder occur that night.  
 
Nancy is glad that her neighbors Judy Diamond and Jeffrey Sankey were arrested as suspects in the murder. She says the neighborhood is better off now that they are gone.
 
"I am thrilled to pieces another pair of junkies is off the road and out of our neighborhood," Nancy said. "Those people are trouble."
