SEATTLE (AP) - The Latest on the disappearance and presumed slayings of a Washington state couple (all times local):
    
12 p.m.
    
Authorities say two brothers wanted in the disappearance and presumed slayings of a Washington state couple may be heading for the Mexican border.
    
Detectives said Tuesday that they found a car in Phoenix that had been driven by 53-year-old John Blaine Reed and his brother, 49-year-old Tony Clyde Reed. They say the suspects have since taken a 2002 Gold Acura 32T with Arizona plate BNN-9968. A license plate reader captured that plate near Calexico, California, on Monday.
    
The brothers are wanted in last week's disappearance of 45-year-old Patrick Shunn and his wife, 46-year-old Monique Patenaude. Investigators are searching a 23-square-mile wooded area 50 miles northeast of Seattle for their bodies.
    
The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office says it's working with U.S. marshals and Phoenix police to track down the Reeds, who are described as armed and dangerous.

Court documents released Monday say that a man wanted in connection with the disappearance and presumed slayings of a married couple previously threatened to shoot them for cutting brush between their two properties.
    
The Seattle Times reports (http://bit.ly/1rdrkgp ) that John Blaine Reed who shared a common driveway with Patrick Shunn and his wife, Monique Patenaude, "reportedly stated he would shoot or assault them if they didn't leave" him alone, investigators wrote in an affidavit for a search warrant.
    
The newspaper says that Reed's alleged threat, which Shunn later reported to Snohomish County sheriff's deputies, was just part of an "ongoing and constant" dispute between the couple and Reed.

10 p.m.
    
Patrick Shunn and Monique Patenaude worried about getting on the wrong side of the man who lived a little ways up an old logging road from their 21-acre spread along the Stillaguamish River.
    
When they sued other neighbors over a property dispute more than two years ago, they avoided naming him as a defendant because they didn't want to irk him, their former lawyer said Monday.
    
But now the couple is missing and presumed murdered, and investigators are trying to track down the man, John Blaine Reed along with his brother, Tony Clyde Reed. Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary said surveillance video linked them to the dumping of the victims' cars over an embankment in a remote, wooded area near Oso, about 50 miles northeast of Seattle.

    Rejected panhandler attacks Spokane woman's car with hammer

    SPOKANE, Wash. - A woman said her car sustained about $1,000 worth of damage from a hammer Monday night. Court documents identify the aggressor as a man she rejected as he was panhandling. It happened outside a Shadle grocery store. The victim said the whole thing was bizarre. "There was someone just right outside the door asking for spare change," Jennifer Semenza said. "I simply said nope."
