Moses Lake Explosion Deaths Could be Linked

Posted: Updated:

MOSES LAKE, Wash-- The Grant County Coroner released new information about two explosions that killed two people within ten hours. After a nine hour autopsy on both bodies the coroner cannot determine if the deaths are linked. 

Last Saturday an explosion killed a 69 year-old man in his shop. Then the next day a 53 year-old man was found dead on the floor of his kitchen after a pipe bomb exploded.

"We still do not know if they are related or unrelated and we won't know that until we get the information back from the crime lab," said Grant County Undersheriff, John Turley.

The FBI and Hanford Patrol assisted the Grant County Sheriff's Office with the investigation, so far they can't confirm what type of bomb killed the 69 year-old.
