 From Sgt. Katie Larsen, Shoreline Police

On October 11, 2010, the Shoreline Police responded to Shorecrest High school to investigate a report of large pools of blood in an area outside the school. Officers arrived and found the blood. It was soon determined that the blood was indeed human.

The following investigative stops were completed for the blood scene at Shorecrest High school:

1. Blood spatter expert Office Dan Christman from Bothell PD was called to do a spatter interpretation. According to the Officer there were passive cast off patterns, but not consistent with a violent encounter.

2. KCSO Deputies Kathy Decker and Troy Chaffee worked their tracking skills. They tracked through the south woods and back to the front of the school, but no additional blood or evidence was found.

3. Both a bloodhound and cadaver dogs searched the area and started on a track, but it wasn’t clear when the track was made or if it was from the victim.

4. A check of area hospitals was made.

5. No reported missing persons from Shoreline who may be a victim.

Det. Bartlett (KCSO Major Crimes) was the lead investigator on the case. At approximately 1000 the Seattle Police Department responded to a suicide attempt in the 3000 block of NE 137th. The 58 year old male admitted that he had gone to Shorecrest to kill himself. He cut himself and lay down to die. When that didn’t happen he went to his mother's home in Seattle and police and fire were summoned. The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

*Most if not all of the additional investigative services were provided at no additional cost to the City.

Why do we continue to allow our government to wage a war at the detrament of our basic services. I cant beleive no one is up in arms about a 1 billion dollar dirt road being built in Afganistan that gets bombed daily.Borrowing money from china to spend in Iraq and Afganistan why we lay off police and firefighters. Looks just like the Soviet Union in 1980
