First Hill Double Homicide "Mysterious" to Seattle Times, Less So to Q13

Depending on what source you read this morning, the killings of a 3-year-old boy and a 30-year-old man on First Hill are either still a mystery or a double homicide complete with a suspect and confession. Either way, what happened on the 17th floor of the "M" street apartments yesterday morning was a tragedy.

The Seattle Times put three of its best reporters on the case, and came back with an impressive amount of detail on the third person found in the apartment, a 39-year-old endocrinologist most recently of Duke Medical School.

The physician obtained a license to practice medicine in Washington in January, according to state Department of Health records.

Dr. Mark Feinglos, the Duke University division chief, worked with the physician and oversaw his training during a three-year endocrinology fellowship, which the physician completed this spring.

"He was here and he was just outstanding. A really good guy," Feinglos said.

"I'm shocked by this news, really. It's just appalling."

The Times also refers to law-enforcement sources that found "a grisly crime scene with the two men in the blood-spattered living room" and the toddler in the bathroom. Those same sources reportedly told the Times that the older physician regained consciousness and spoke before being transported to Harborview Medical Center's intensive -care unit.

But in order to find out what the physician allegedly said, you'd have to consult Q13, which either has better sources or is more willing to speculate:

Police sources on scene stated that the incident began as a domestic dispute between a gay couple. Apparently, the three-year-old who had been stabbed was the adopted child of the two men . . . A police source said when officers arrived, a 39-year-old Asian man confessed that he "did it" and then passed out.
