Eugene V. Elkins has been arrested after a manhunt across Washington. Undersheriff Rick Scott tells KXRO that authorities were given information that led them to believe the homicide suspect had driven to Eastern Washington in the victim’s car. Yakima Police located the stolen vehicle and arrested the 56 year old man.
Scott says Grays Harbor sent detectives to Yakima to retrieve Elkins and return him to Montesano.
The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of next of kin. Scott says that the 58 year old woman was found dead in her residence on Clemons Rd in Montesano.
