Victim of suspicious death in Bothell identified

The victim of a suspicious death discovered in her Bothell home Tuesday morning has been identified as Susann Smith by her Seattle-based employer.

Smith is a 37-year-old mother of two young children, according to Times new partner KING-TV.

Mobile game developer, Z2Live, released a statement today saying that several employees became worried when Smith did not show up for work or answer repeated phone calls because she had always been a “passionate and dedicated employee.” Bothell authorities later informed the company that she was found dead at her home on the 200 block of 240th Street Southwest.

“Susann was an employee of Z2Live for a little over a year, and during her time here brought endless energy, smiles and a creative spirit to her work and the office,” the company’s statement said. “The Z2Live family is extremely saddened and equally heartbroken by the news of the loss of our friend and co-worker.”

The Bothell Police Department has not released any details on how or when Smith died, or any possible suspects. KIRO-TV reported that Smith had recently divorced and was in a custody battle over the two children with her ex-husband.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office also has not released her name or cause of death yet.
