Bothell police investigating suspicious death of elderly woman | Update

Bothell police are investigating the suspicious death of an 80-year-old woman who was found suffering from severe traumatic injuries and later died at the scene on Saturday morning.

Police took the woman’s 42-year-old daughter into custody, who resides at a mobile home where the incident occurred. The daughter is considered a suspect in the case, said Bothell police Capt. Denise Langford.

The Bothell Police Department received a 911 call at approximately 5 a.m. Saturday from the daughter who requested some medical assistance at a mobile home located in the 3300 block of 228th St. S.E. in Bothell.

Officers contacted the woman outside her front door. Due to some concerning statements and behaviors, the officers determined they needed to check the welfare of anyone inside the residence.

The officers found the woman’s mother inside, who was suffering from severe traumatic injuries. Medics and aid responded to treat the woman, however she died while still at the scene.

The daughter was taken into custody and as of Monday was in the hospital for undisclosed medical issues, said Langford.

Detectives obtained a search warrant on Saturday and were still processing the scene on Monday. They are still awaiting the autopsy report to determine the woman’s cause of death.
