WWII Spokane Veteran Murdered
Right now the suspects are still at large but more importantly the Veteran has passed away due to his injuries.
He was 89 years old and worked for Kaiser Aluminum in the Spokane Valley for 30 years. A life of service and a life of aluminum that is no easy life. It is back breaking.
What is ironic is we lost a military hero in Delbert and we will gain another hero in Ty Carter who is receiving the Medal of Honor on Monday for his actions at Outpost Keating.
Spokane residents are humble residents we know the value of a life and we understand that even though we have heroes they had to become heroes in ways that no one ever wants too.
The two suspects are still at large Spokane police are looking for two male suspects between 16 and 19 years old.
One suspect was wearing all black clothing and heavy set. The other suspect is six feet tall and 150 lbs. The only thing they saw on the 2nd suspect was a silk do rag.
