Major Crimes: Kim murder investigation will last several days

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane County Sheriff's deputies say the investigation into the murders of Richard and Teresa Kim will continue for the next several days.

Counselors were brought into Apria Healthcare today to help those who worked with Richard.  His boss described him as a "brilliant" man who would literally memorize technical manuals.  Richard worked there as a respiratory therapist for the past five years. 

Co-workers said he would be sorely missed.  Friends and former patients added to a makeshift memorial at the office, leaving flowers and cards.  Those who knew him didn't want to speak to the media today.  They said there was nothing more to say.

Meanwhile, at the crime scene, investigators combed the property where Richard and Teresa's bodies were found in the bucket of a Bobcat tractor.  Deputies and workers from the State Patrol Crime Lab looked for clues, attempting to make sense of something that could only be described as senseless.

"There's not a murder investigation that we do that doesn't affect the people who work them - one man or another," said Sgt. James Goodwin, Major Crimes.  "I think some cases are more difficult than others, and that they're harder for most of us on the outside looking in to make sense of, and I think this would certainly be one of those."

And at Rogers High School, where Teresa worked as a math teacher, life continued.  Students and administrators alike are trying to cope with the loss of one of their most beloved teachers.

Bryan Kim remains behind bars, charged with the murder of both of his parents.  His sister, Jessica, is in the Spokane area.  Richard's boss said he spoke with her and said she appears to be holding up as best she can.
