The Bothell Police Department confirmed Friday that they consider the estranged husband of a Bothell woman who was found dead in her home as a person of interest and served a search warrant on the man's residence.
The couple were in the midst of a contentious divorce and have two small children, according to Snohomish County Court documents.
"The Bothell Police Department is continuing to pursue all leads in this homicide investigation," said Sgt. Cedric Collins. "… No arrests have been made and anyone who may have information they feel may be helpful in this investigation is encouraged to call the Bothell Police Department tip line."
That number is 425-487-5551.
Bothell police found Smith during a welfare check at her home in the 200 block of 240th St. S.W. in Bothell.
Smith's employer, Z2Live, contacted the Bothell Police Department that day because they were concerned about Smith's welfare, said Z2Live CEO Lou Fasulo in a statement on Feb. 13.
Collins said Smith died of “homicidal violence," but did not have any further details about the investigation.
