November 21, 2017
(SILVERDALE, WA.) -- The Kitsap County Sheriff's office says a 63-year-old Central Kitsap man was arrested Sunday "for ligature strangling an 89-year-old woman."
The woman is the man's mother.
Five sheriff’s patrol deputies responded to a residence on Schultz Road NW in the Wildcat Lake area of the county following a 9-1-1 dispatch of a report called-in by the strangling suspect.
Authorities say the suspect called 911 to say his mother wasn’t breathing after he strangled her with a rope. The man then reportedly began cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) but "soon tired and stopped," said a statement from the sheriff's office.
When deputies arrived at the address, the suspect was standing on the front porch and was detained without incident at that point.
Going inside the residence deputies found the elderly woman on her back, on the living room floor where she had no pulse.
Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue emergency crews, assisted by a sheriff’s patrol deputy began administering first aid. An automated external defibrillator was used to restore cardiac rhythm and the woman was then taken by medic unit to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton.
When the woman had been removed from the house all first responders exited the residence pending authorization to re-enter under authority of a search warrant. Sheriff’s detectives responded to the property to continue the investigation which included recovering a rope the suspect allegedly used to strangle his mother.
The man was booked into the Kitsap County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, 1 degree. His bail amount was set at $1 million.
