Carnation killings; neighbor speaks

CARNATION, Wash. - The Carnation area property where six people were killed on Christmas Eve is owned by 60-year-old Wayne Anderson and 61-year-old Judy Anderson, according to public records.

Mark Bennett, who identified himself as a family friend, says Wayne Anderson was a Boeing engineer and Judy Anderson worked for the Post Office in Carnation.

Bennett says he spoke with the couple on Christmas Eve and tried to call them Christmas Day, but could not reach them. Bennett told reporters he came to the property this morning after seeing the home on television news.

Bennett says the Andersons have three children. He says one daughter, Michelle, lives on the property in a mobile home.

Bennett says he used to run a coffee shop with another daughter, Mary, who lives in nearby North Bend. He says a son also lives in the area.

Two people were arrested this evening after the bodies of six people, likely family members and including two young children, were found earlier in the day at the rural property east of Seattle.

Sgt. John Urquhart says a 29-year-old woman and a man in his early 30s were being held for investigation of homicide.

Urquhart says it was unclear whether the two are related, but they were known to the victims. The pair came to the crime scene after investigators arrived there this morning, were questioned by investigators, then arrested shortly after 4 p.m.

Urquhart said investigators had not determined a motive for the deaths.

The victims included a boy about age 3, a girl about age 6, a man and woman in their 30s, and a man and woman in their 50s. Their names were not released, but they were "most likely three generations" of one family.
