Two women are dead after a “stabbing” in a University of Washington apartment. Another woman was seriously injured in the attack. Fox Seattle reports the bodies of the two women were found on the morning of September 4 after building managers performed a welfare check. The scene is being examined by Seattle Police Department homicide detectives. The King County Medical Examiner will determine the exact cause of death for the two women. Their identities have not been released by officials. There are “no outstanding suspects” being sought in the case, police said.
According to a tweet from the Seattle Police Department, the incident occurred at 4423 15th Avenue Northeast. Seattle Patch reports that the building is a 123-unit complex that houses students in studio and one-bedroom apartments. The building is known as the Malloy Apartments. The incident was referred to as a “stabbing” in an emergency alert that was sent out to students at around 9:30 a.m.” It’s not known if the two victims were students at the school. Siam Town US reports that the two deceased women are from Thailand.
A press release from the Seattle PD says that investigators are “on scene and actively working to determine the circumstances of this case, and whether there are any outstanding individuals involved in this incident.”
According to the website for the Malloy, “Historic charm is just one of the many reasons to call Malloy home. You will enjoy the many benefits of our excellent location across the street from the University of Washington and walking distance to all the happening on “The Ave.” The website says that there are 201 residents in the building and that it is 200 steps to the University of Washington.
