Detectives seek suspect in woman’s homicide

Alisha Michelle Canales-McGuire was shot to death Wednesday at a home south of Paine Field.

EVERETT — Detectives are seeking security footage that could help solve a killing south of Everett.

Two days into an investigation, no suspect has been identified in the homicide of a woman south of Paine Field, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Alisha Michelle Canales-McGuire was shot to death around 2 a.m. Wednesday inside a front door of a duplex in the 3100 block of York Road. She was 24.

Neighbors heard gunfire and called police. Another woman and three young children were in the duplex unit too. They’d been asleep, and they weren’t harmed, said Shari Ireton, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office.

This week the sheriff’s office made automated calls to residents and businesses in the area, in search of security videos or photos taken from 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. Wednesday, within a mile of the crime scene.

On Friday, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the cause of death was homicidal violence. Meanwhile deputies went door-to-door in the neighborhood.

About 100 people have spoken with detectives about the case, Ireton said. Many were sleeping when shots rang out, and none have been able to identify a suspect.

Records show Canales-McGuire, of Concrete, filed for a marriage license in July in southwest Washington.

Police have responded to domestic violence complaints from another woman associated with the duplex on York Road, according to court records.

Tips can be directed to the sheriff’s office at 425-388-3845.
