Redmond police deem woman’s suspicious death as homicide

A roommate called police after his roommates had been missing for a couple of days.

Redmond police recently announced the woman found deceased in her apartment Tuesday night was killed.

At about 8:58 p.m. on April 3, police got a call from a roommate of the 26-year-old woman. According to Redmond police spokesperson Andrea Wolf-Buck, the male roommate hadn’t heard from the woman and her partner, who were all living together at Redmond Hill apartments, for a couple of days.

Police arrived at the apartment in the 18700 block of Redmond Way and found the woman.

“We are investigating this as a homicide but have not confirmed yet cause of death,” Wolf-Buck said in an email. “We can confirm there were serious signs of violence on the victim’s body.”

Initially, police were looking at the victim’s death as suspicious but had not yet determined it homicide.

Wolf-Buck said the male roommate is cooperating with the investigation. But police are looking to speak with the woman’s partner, who is now considered a person of interest.

Detectives have been on scene since the early morning of April 4 conducting an investigation.

This case is under active investigation and more details will be available at a later time.

The Reporter will update this story as more information becomes available.
