Help sought locating burglary suspect

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is seeking help identifying a masked burglary suspect who hit a cleaner in the head with a tire iron.

The suspect was attempting to burglarize Morty’s Pub and Grill, 5517 S. Regal St. at about 3 a.m. Oct. 24 when the victim entered to clean the business. The victim confronted the suspect and tried to detain him. During the struggle, the suspect pulled out a tire iron and began hitting the victim. The victim was able to pull the hood, mask and baseball cap off the suspect’s head before the suspect fled.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5-feet-10 with a stocky build. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants, black or dark brown high top-style shoes, a baseball cap and dark gloves with white writing near the knuckles.

Deputies checked the area with the assistance of a police dog, but could not locate the suspect.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and received stitches in the back of his head.

Anyone with information on the case should call Detective Justin Elliott at (509) 477-3786.

Reservation holds memorial for gunman

TULALIP, Wash. – Hundreds of people packed a recreation center on the Tulalip Indian reservation Thursday for a memorial service for the 15-year-old gunman in a deadly Washington state school shooting.

Jaylen Fryberg was a homecoming prince from a prominent tribal family.

Tribal police and others wore arm bands that read “In Loving Memory” of Fryberg. Inside the recreation center, a gym was filled with hundreds of mourners, and tribal members chanted and played drums. Earlier this week the tribe released a statement condemning Fryberg’s “horrific actions” but adding it was their custom to come together in times of grief.

“We are supporting the family of Jaylen Fryberg in their time of loss, but that does not mean we condone his actions,” the tribe said.

On Friday, Fryberg pulled out a handgun in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School cafeteria north of Seattle and started shooting.

The victims were Zoe R. Galasso, 14, who died at the scene; Gia Soriano, 14, who died at a hospital Sunday night; Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, who is in critical condition; and Fryberg’s cousins, Nate Hatch, 14, and Andrew Fryberg, 15. Andrew Fryberg is in critical condition, while Hatch had surgery Thursday to repair his jaw. He’s listed in satisfactory condition.

Oregon woman’s death sentence upheld

PORTLAND – The only woman on Oregon’s death row will remain there.

The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the conviction and sentence of Angela McAnulty, who tortured and killed her teenage daughter in 2009.

The Eugene woman pleaded guilty on the day her trial was set to begin in 2011. A Lane County jury then sentenced her to death.

Since Oregon voters in 1984 reinstated capital punishment, just two inmates have died via lethal injection – one in 1996, the other a year later. Gov. John Kitzhaber has placed a moratorium on executions during his time in office.
