Intruder killed in North Bend home identified by medical examiner’s office

The intruder stabbed to death early Monday in a fight with a couple in a North Bend home has been identified as Kenneth E. Boonstra, 48, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Boonstra died from a number of stab wounds, the medical examiner’s office says. He lived in North Bend, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Boonstra was killed around 1 a.m. Monday after he broke into a home in the 10100 block of 420th Avenue Southeast and confronted a 29-year-old man who lived there with his wife, infant daughter and in-laws. During a struggle, Boonstra was stabbed by the 29-year-old man’s wife, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives say they are confident Boonstra is the same man who walked into the home through an unlocked door Sunday afternoon and attacked the man’s wife. He left after she gave him some cash.

Detectives say Boonstra apparently did not know the home’s occupants and targeted the home at random.

Boonstran does not have a criminal record in Washington state and was divorced in 2008, according to court records.
