Spokane County court records show that 30-year-old Amber Roberts played a game of “hot and cold” with a staff member of the mental hospital that led to discovery of the body.
Roberts approached a staff member early Tuesday and said: “I murdered someone, but you’re going to have to find him.”
According to documents, the staff member searched room to room, with Roberts following and saying: “You’re getting warmer.”
As the staff member approached the room of 56-year-old Duane E. Charley, Roberts said: “You’re hot.”
The staff member looked inside and found Charley’s body.
Roberts told the staff she had strangled him with an electrical cord.
