King County Sheriff’s SWAT team found what appears to be murder suspect Peter Keller's body, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot, after breaching a Rattlesnake Ridge bunker Saturday morning. At around 10 a.m., the sheriff's TAC 30 team used an explosive to breach the roof of the heavily fortified hideout, which allowed enough access for the deputies to make their way inside. In the bunker, deputies discovered a body, which they said appeared to be Keller. The Sheriff’s Office will use their bomb disposal unit to clear the bunker, to ensure there are no explosive or booby traps. Once the bunker has been cleared, detectives will enter it to begin a crime scene investigation. The King County Medical Examiner will determine the official cause of death and positively identify the body.
