Spokane police are seeking the individual who tattooed star-shaped symbols on homicide victim Ramona Childress.

Childress, 27, disappeared more than a year ago. Her boyfriend, Jason Flett, is in custody on suspicion of stabbing her to death, fearing she would report several home invasion burglaries he’d allegedly committed.

Police uncovered human remains believed to belong to Childress last Thursday on a rural property near Elk, Wash. The medical examiner has not verified the identification.

Detectives believe the tattoo was the work of an acquaintance rather than a professional tattoo artist.

Police ask that the individual who tattooed Childress contact Major Crimes Detective Mark Burbridge at 509-625-4262.

Flett is in Spokane County Jail on charges of second-degree murder. His bond was set at $1 million Friday.
