Carnation Murders / Massacre 2007

346th Avenue NE Carnation, Washington
The Carnation massacre was a mass murder that occurred on December 24, 2007 inside a house at Carnation, Washington near Seattle, Washington.

The Google Maps view is so poor that I chose to show the terrain view. However. Live Maps has an excellent Bird's eye of the property.

The Seattle Times reports two people have been arrested in this case. Michele Kristen Anderson, the 29-year-old daughter of Judy and Wayne Anderson, who own the property where the shooting occurred, has been booked into the King County Jail on six counts of suspicion of homicide, along with her boyfriend, Joseph Thomas McEnroe, 29. Investigators have not pinpointed a motive for the slayings, but believe that a dispute over money may have lead to the killings.

According to friends and neighbors, the dead were: Michele Anderson's father and mother, Wayne Scott Anderson, 60, a Boeing engineer, and postal worker Judy Anderson, 61, at whose home the shootings occurred; Scott Anderson, Michele's brother; his wife, Erica; and their two children, 6-year-old Olivia and 3-year-old Nathan.
