TACOMA (AP) — A sheriff’s deputy found two bodies in a home in the Tacoma suburb of Frederickson Sunday, and authorities detained four people for questioning.
Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Jerry Bates says it is unclear yet how the two people died or who they were.
The four people detained were found in a vehicle associated with the house where the bodies were found.
The News Tribune reported Sunday night that a 40-year-old man had been taken into custody in what the Sheriff’s Department described as the homicides of two men, 22 and 66.
The News Tribune reports that experts from the Sheriff’s Department were called to examine a possible booby trap in the home. Bates later said that investigators believe that the suspicious wiring connected to an outbuilding may be part of an old marijuana grow.
The bodies were found around 8:30 a.m. Sunday by a deputy who was doing a routine address check on a sex offender.
Frederickson is about 20 miles south of Tacoma.
