Michael Boysen has been incarcerated since 2006 after being convicted of several robbery related charges. His grandparents picked him up from prison after he was released, and were taking him to their home where they had prepared a room for him to live in.
A family member became concerned when the couple would not answer their door, so their daughter was called. That’s when the bodies of 82-year-old Robert R. and his wife, 80-year-old Norma J. Taylor, were found dead inside the home.
Police believe they were killed sometime Friday night or Saturday morning. Police have not released how they died, aside from saying they were not shot.
“We are at a loss as to why he killed them,” the sheriff said. “We don’t know what the motive is.”
Detectives believe Boysen is trying to find weapons because he’d been searching the Internet for “gun shows” across the Northwest and Nevada. Boysen “is considered an extreme danger to the public and police,” the King County sheriff’s office said.
King County Sheriff John Urquhart said Boysen has made threats against family members and law enforcement officials. “I can’t stress how dangerous this guy is,” he said at a Monday news conference. Boysen is 5-foot-10, weighs 170 pounds and has hazel eyes. He may be driving a red, 2001 Chrysler 300, with Washington license plate 046XXU.Tags: Crime, Fugitive, grandparents, Michael Boysen, Murder, Washington
