Bothell woman strangled

by Marshall Haley, staff reporter

   Elizabeth Ann Nelson, 36, was found strangled in the bedroom of her Bothell apartment, in the 18600 block of 104th Ave. NE on Saturday, Dec. 18. Her 1984 Honda Accord was found later that day, abandoned near Airport Way and Highway 99 in Everett.

   Nelson's body was found when her landlord came in to show the apartment to a prospective renter. Nelson lived alone, the landlord told police. There was no indication of forced entry or weapons used, which could indicate that Nelson knew her murderer, according to Bothell Police.

   Anyone who saw any suspicious activity around Nelson's house that weekend is asked to call Bothell Police at 425-486-1254.
