SPOKANE, Wash.--Doug Carlile’s suspected killer Timothy Suckow is known to law enforcement and has a criminal history.
Suckow was arrested twice for burglaries in the 1980s.
Court documents showed he has a troubled past with mental illness. Documents revealed Suckow’s two burglaries in the 80s. They showed how the two crimes helped the State learn about the mental health issues that Suckow faces.
Suckow appeared in court on Tuesday without showing any of the dangerous behaviors that court documents showed in his past.
One of Suckow’s burglaries was at a restaurant in 1982. Records said he had a deranged state of mind. A few months later, he burglarized a home. Once again, documents noted a deranged state of mind. The state later diagnosed him with a mental illness.
Documents showed a history of devil worshipping and self-destructive behavior.
Suckow was admitted to Eastern State hospital in 1984. He later spent time in other hospitals in Minnesota, Kansas and California. He was released in 1989.
Over the course of the years following his time in hospitals, information regarding his time in jail and court as well as his mental health history was compiled.
It was part of an appeal case to show he was not a competent adult when he committed the crimes.
