No arrests in last week’s double homicide near Beacon Hill

Seattle police say they are hoping for witness tips to help lead them to the arrest of whoever killed two men inside a car last week.

Edward James Westmoreland II, 34, and Elijah Roosevelt Paul III, 42, died on March 4 after being shot in the head, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s office. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

Police came upon the shooting scene around 6 that morning when a patrol officer stopped to investigate a maroon Jaguar, at the corner of 39th Avenue South and South Kenyon Street near Beacon Hill, with broken glass on the ground nearby. The officer initially thought the car had been prowled, but when he looked inside he saw the two bodies, said police spokesman Mark Jamieson.

Edward Westmoreland Sr. told KING-TV that he doesn’t know who would want his son dead.

Paul’s family could not be reached for comment.

Jamieson said today that the case remains “active and ongoing.” He said that anyone with information should call the homicide tip line at 206- 233-5000.
