Detectives seek good Samaritan in Cossey murder

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Earl “Coss” Cossey, 71, was found murdered in his Woodinville home on Friday, April 26. Police are still investigating the crime.

King County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the “good Samaritan” who mailed murder victim Earl Cossey’s driver’s license and credit cards to his house to come forward.

Detectives said family members had Cossey’s mail forwarded to a relative’s house after his death.   Sometime during the last few days the relative received an envelope containing Cossey’s license, credit cards and a casino gaming card.

Detectives believe the items were found by someone and mailed directly to Cossey’s address which was listed on his driver’s license.

If you have any information regarding this case or the items mailed, please call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours).  You can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. All calls are confidential. Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any information leading to the arrest and charge of anyone involved in this homicide.
