Suspect Arrested in Ballard Homicide

An 18-year-old man is in custody after he was arrested in connection with the homicide that happened in the 300 block of NW 47th Street Friday.

At around 9:30 pm, a family member discovered the body of the 55-year-old female victim inside the house they shared and called 911. The victim had obvious wounds.  Seattle Police and Seattle Fire both responded, but the victim was already deceased.  Homicide detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene to begin their investigation.  During their investigation, detectives developed information that led them to an address south of Seattle where they contacted and arrested the suspect.  He was later booked into the King County Jail.

This remains an active and on-going homicide investigation.
