Adult store homicide suspect in gets $2 million bail
Bail is set at two million dollars for the suspect in yesterday's adult store homicide. Police believe 39-year-old Aaron Wilsey was robbing the Yakima Arcade when he hit the store clerk on the head, killing him.
The Yakima arcade, an adult video store on South Front Street is usually open 24 hours. It closed down Tuesday for the homicide investigation of Edward Foster. Police say he is the 70-year-old employee who was found dead Tuesday morning.
"We had one of our guys here in the morning and he let me know what he saw and thought there was probably a homicide," said Robbin Parsley, who works next door.
"It's always sad when someone is killed, especially at work, that's a tragic thing but we're investigating it and working on leads," said Sgt. Tony Bennett from the Yakima Police Department.
A Christian store is next door and while they're not thrilled to be so close, employees say they have never witnessed anything like this.
"We believe there are drug deals going around us but as of a big thing like this or fighting no we haven't experience that," said Parsely.
Officers say this homicide is a rare case. They don't have any recent records of violent activity near this store.
