It does appear the house was burglarized,” says Seattle Police Department spokesman Mark Jamieson. “In order to cover up that crime, the suspect” set the home on fire.
Police on Wednesday released a sketch of the suspect in the incident.
The suspect is described as a black male with a medium to dark complexion, 18 to early 20′s, 5’11″ tall, 150 lbs., athletic build, and hair in corn rows.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police immediately and refer to this incident.
This remains an active and on-going Seattle Police Arson investigation.
