Sedro Woolley, Washington- A Sedro Woolley Man, who is being held in the Skagit County Jail on charges of Child Molestation involving his juvenile daughter has been arrested for attempting to have her and his mother-in-law murdered by another inmate.

According to a press release from Lieutenant Chris Cammock with the Mount Vernon Police Department, the Skagit County Prosecutor’s Office contacted the Mount Vernon Police Department on Monday, May 11th, 2016 regarding an inmate at the Skagit County Jail who was soliciting another inmate to commit a murder.

Detectives learned the suspect, a  50-year old Sedro Woolley Man, was being held on charges of Child Molestation involving his juvenile daughter by the Sedro Woolley Police Department.  The man  believed that if the child victim was no longer around his Child Molestation charges in the case would be dropped and he would be freed from jail.

Over the next several days, Mount Vernon Investigators obtained recorded conversations, written documents and conducted several interviews with witnesses and the suspect.  Investigators learned the suspect had offered to sign over three vehicles he valued at approximately $10,000 in exchange for the cellmate to kill his daughter and mother-in-law once the inmate was released from jail.

Additionally, the suspect developed code words to use if the plans changed after the cellmate was released and they needed to talk by phone. The suspect had several opportunities over these days to cancel the plans, warn the intended victims, advise authorities, or notify the cellmate it was not a serious request, however this never occurred.

On Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 following another interview with the suspect, investigators had enough reason to believe the suspect’s plans were serious and intentional and he was charged with criminally attempting to commit murder.

Both intended victims were safe throughout the investigation and not physically harmed in any way.

The cellmate, was not involved in the crime other then being a cooperative witness and no charges are expected against him.


The man has not been named by SkagitBreaking.com to protect the identity of the young victim.
