Seattle police make arrest in cold-case homicide

Seattle police have made an arrest in the connection with the 2011 slaying of Donald Meyer, whose remains were found in Georgetown and underneath the Ship Canal Bridge.

King County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Dan Donohoe said Scott Halfhill was charged Monday with second-degree murder. Halfhill, 59, was booked into the King County Jail on Monday.

Halfhill, who was Meyer’s roommate, has long been a suspect in the case, authorities said. Halfhill was apparently upset with Meyer for “doing drugs,” charges said.

A clear motive for the slaying was not disclosed in charging documents.

Meyer, a  53-year-old Ballard man, was reported missing in 2011.

Part of Meyer’s body was found at a recycling center in Georgetown a month after his disappearance. Other remains were later discovered months on a hillside beneath the Ship Canal Bridge.
