NORTH BEND, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities in Washington state say they've found a body in an elaborate bunker they had surrounded in the Cascade Mountains, and it appears to be that of a man wanted for killing his wife and teenage daughter last weekend.
The King County Sheriff's Office sent word via Twitter on Saturday that they'd found the body, nearly 23 hours after they first located the structure carved into the side of Rattlesnake Ridge east of Seattle.
The suspect was 41-year-old Peter Keller, a heavily armed survivalist not seen since the killings at his home last weekend. Keller had spent nearly eight years building the bunker.
