NORTH BEND, Wash. -- KIng County sheriff's investigators are hoping several tips they've received will lead them to Peter Keller, the man suspected of killing his wife and daughter, then setting their North Bend home on fire.
Authorities have posted posters at many trailheads near North Bend in the I-90 corridor. They say they're receiving several tips, adding no matter how insignificant a tip may appear, all will be evaluated.
Many tips are reportedly coming from people who remember spotting Keller's red truck at a trailhead near North Bend. Detectives said they're going through those tips to determine where they could search for Keller.
Keller is the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, Lynette, and his 18-year-old daughter, Kaylene, Sunday in their home near North Bend. Kaylene and Lynette were shot in the head and their home was set on fire.
Probable cause documents reveal Keller said he was "preparing for the end of the world" and had often carried supplies to a "fort in the woods."
Family members said Keller has a "survivalist mentality" and a "distaste for authority."
Investigators are proceeding with caution because they consider Keller armed and extremely dangerous. The wilderness area near North Bend, if they were to search it, could be extremely difficult. But police urge the public to continue submitting any tips - no tip is too small.
