Police: Edmonds man stabs father to death, turns self in

EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) - - Police say an Edmonds man stabbed his father to death and then turned himself into officers saying he’d committed a premeditated homicide.

The Daily Herald reports the 24-year-old arrived at the Edmonds police station around 2:40 a.m. Thursday, reporting he’d killed his father, police Sgt. Shane Hawley said in a news release.

Police say officers went to the home and found the body of the 64-year-old father, who had suffered multiple stab wounds.

Hawley says based on previous contacts with the suspect his family had reported that he had a history of mental illness.

The man told police he’d walked more than 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the home to the police station.

The man was expected to be booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree murder.
