Mayor Harrell Statement on SPD Homicide Arrests

Seattle – Today, Mayor Harrell released the following statement after the Seattle Police Department (SPD) announced arrests made in three recent homicide cases

“These homicide arrests are another example of why I am grateful for the service of our police officers. They were persistent, patient, and thorough – and the result of their efforts is a safer Seattle. In the case of the victim living unsheltered, our detectives’ intuition and quick investigative work may have very well prevented another homicide from occurring.
