PACIFIC, Wash. - A teenager suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend's 13-year-old brother is being held on $1 million bail.
According to police documents, 19-year-old Brandon Suhr admitted to stabbing the boy and hiding his body in a closet.
Police said Suhr broke into his ex-girlfriend's home in Pacific early Friday morning by climbing through a balcony window.
Detectives said after Suhr stabbed the boy, he subdued his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend by choking her and forced her to go to his home where he lived with his mother.
Police arrived at the Pacific apartment where the teens lived with their parents after their father reported that he had found a lot of blood in the hallway and on his son’s bed, and said his two children were missing.
The children’s mother reported that three Japanese swords were missing and that she found a note on the family’s white board that said the daughter had killed her brother.
Police arrived to find the body of the 13-year-old stuffed in a closet.
Suhr was arrested at his mother's home in Algona.
The 16-year-old girl said Suhr was probably upset over their break up, and that she witnessed her brother’s slaying. Suhr forced her to write a note saying she killed her brother and then forced her to leave with him, documents said.
Suhr later confessed to the killing, police documents said.
Suhr is being held in the Regional Justice Center in Kent for investigation of homicide, kidnapping and burglary.
