Everett landlord’s body found Monday in Skagit County

Police believe a tenant killed him Saturday at his rental property on Madison Street.

EVERETT — A Mukilteo man’s body was found in Skagit County on Monday after he was allegedly killed over the weekend, according to the Everett Police Department.

On Saturday, the 67-year-old man hadn’t returned home to Mukilteo when he said he would. His wife went looking for him at their rental property in the 2100 block of Madison Street in Everett.

Around 4:40 p.m., she found his truck and cell phone, along with a tenant who was cleaning up blood from the sidewalk.

Police arrested the 40-year-old renter in Marysville for investigation of second-degree murder and tampering with evidence. He is in the Snohomish County Jail.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause of death.
