Tenant allegedly killed Everett landlord, but no body found

Police said the 67-year-old man is presumed dead. A 40-year-old man was arrested.

EVERETT — An Everett man is presumed dead and another man is suspected of killing him, Everett police said.

The victim, a 67-year-old landlord, reportedly checked on his rental Saturday afternoon in the 2100 block of Madison Street. When he didn’t return, his wife went there to look for him and found his truck and cell phone, but not him. She reportedly saw a tenant cleaning blood off the sidewalk, then leave, and she called police to say her husband was missing, Everett police said.

Officers saw blood outside the building and forced entry into the unit, where they found more blood inside.

Police located the tenant, a 40-year-old man, in Marysville. He was arrested for investigation of murder and tampering with physical evidence. They allege that the man killed the landlord and moved the body.

The investigation is ongoing.
