Peter Keller, a survivalist, had put bullets in his wife and his daughter, his cat and his dog. He didn’t want to be found. He had fashioned a 2 1/2 level bunker in the woods near Rattlesnake Ridge.
After a 22-hour standoff, police blew the top off a rugged mountain bunker near Seattle on Saturday, only to find their target — a man believed to be a murder suspect who holed up there — dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside.
Authorities on Friday surrounded an elaborate, underground bunker believed to be that of a gun-toting survivalist suspected of killing his wife and daughter nearly a week ago and then holing up in the woods of Washington state.
