Search for suspected killer ends with death inside Rattlesnake Ridge bunker By Seth Truscott and Carol Ladwig


Valley Record Staff

The man who police say shot his family, torched his home and fled to an underground lair on Rattlesnake Ridge, is dead. When SWAT teams blasted their way inside North Bend resident Peter A. Keller’s log-built bunker on Saturday morning, April 28, they found the suspect’s body, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot. At a press conference near the

Whatever other titles he may hold, Marvin Kempf, a hereditary chief of the Snoqualmie Tribe, and the son of Snoqualmie Princess Roslyn Harvey Kempf, is a born storyteller. Creation, the monster of the mountain, and battling giants, are all easilyrecalled legends from his culture, and ones he loves to share. “I was thinking about another story,” he announced over lunch last Friday. It’s a story he learned from his elders, when he asked why his own people didn’t have beautiful creation tales like the Jewish tradition. “They laughed and said ‘oh, that’s a young tribe,’” he said.

BUNKER SiEGE FROM 1 Keller’s “behavior is irrational, combined with a high level of preparation and intelligence. It’s a very unusual case,” Strachan said.

Built over eight years, homicide suspect Peter Keller’s bunker on Rattlesnake Ridge was stocked with weaponry. Keller kept photos of the project like the one above.

Deadly designs Family members and aquaintances said murder suspect Peter Keller had a fascination with guns, a distaste for authority, and a sense that the end of the world was close. He spent years building a hideout on Rattlesnake Ridge overlooking North Bend. On April 22, he is alleged to have killed his wife and daughter and torched his home, leaving his car, fueled and unlocked, at the North Bend Library, then trekking to a log-built bunker for a final stand. Officers found photos on his home computer’s drive that, with help from citizen tips about Keller’s frequent visits to a local trailhead, led to the bunker. Police and helicopters surrounded the site for two days, before Keller took his own life.

Mother and daughter

The search for Peter Keller had began six days earlier, the reaction to a tragedy that started with the report of a fire at the Keller family’s rental home, at 47227 S.W. 159th Street, on Sunday, April 22. Responding to a fire that had been deliberately set with gasoline, firefighters discovered the bodies of Lynnettee Keller, 41, and her daughter, Kaylene, 18, both dead from .22 caliber gunshot wounds to the head. Husband and father Peter Keller was nowhere to be found, but police did discover spent shell casings, scattered bullets and empty gun boxes in his room. Also found at the home were the family dog and cat, both dead. The County Medical Examiner X-rayed the animals and found that each had been shot. Arson investigators found someone had placed a one-gallon plastic gas can in a skillet on the electric stove, and turned the burner on. The fumes ignited and the fire quickly spread, causing damage to the roof and a partial collapse in the kitchen. A fivegallon gas can on the floor had melted from the heat, causing the liquid to spill out, igniting the floor of the kitchen within 30 minutes. Two more five-gallon gas cans and three twogallon cans had been set throughout the home. They expanded almost to the point of failure when firefighters removed them from the home. Officers found Peter Keller’s car, a Toyota Corolla, a few hours later near the North Bend Library. The car was empty, with all the doors unlocked and the keys in the ignition. It showed no signs of having been stolen from the home and abandoned.

The suspect

The clues Investigators used this view from Keller’s bunker, overlooking North Bend, to calculate the location of the hideout. Citizen tips about Keller’s truck frequently visiting the trailhead also narrowed the search.

At first named “a person of interest,” Keller became the prime suspect Wednesday, April 25, as the investigation deepened. The evidence against Keller, described in the charging documents, suggests that he had been planning something for some time. He reportedly withdrew $6,200 in cash from an Issaquah branch of Chase Bank on Friday, April 20, and turned off his cell phone the following evening. He had scheduled the Monday, Thursday and Friday before the murders off from his job in Preston. A co-worker told detectives that he’d asked Keller when he’d be back to work, and “Peter replied that he may not come back next week, the week after that, or maybe never,” the document stated. Court papers state that another co-worker listed some of the firearms that Keller owned, including high-powered rifles with scopes, and silencers. The co-worker said that Keller had not told his wife about the purchase of the silencers, because they were too expensive. Two empty boxes for silencers were found on the floor of the master bedroom, where Lynnettee Keller was found. Also on the floor were a box of .22 caliber bullets scattered around the room, empty firearms boxes, and spent .22 shell casings. Family members and acquaintances described Keller as an avid outdoorsman, who frequently hiked alone in the woods. Court documents described detectives’ conversations with Kaylene’s boyfriend, and with members of Lynnettee’s family, which showed Keller to be a survivalist, recluse, and gun collector. He also owned body armor, according to a co-worker. Detectives reported in the court papers that Kaylene’s boyfriend had heard from her that Keller was preparing for the end of the world, and building a stockpile of weapons and supplies at a “fort” in the woods. The boyfriend also stated that Keller had purchased a new laptop computer within the last two weeks. The laptop was not found at the home, according to the charging papers. Members of Lynnettee’s family said Keller was reclusive, “had a fascination with trains and guns; that he had a survivalist mentality and distaste for author-

Bunker discovery By Friday, police were converging on Keller’s Rattlesnake Ridge hideout, located on a hillside above North Bend. Meeting with members of the media that afternoon, Sheriff Strachan related how teams carefully made their way into position around the well-hidden lair in an early-morning operation. Sheriff’s detectives found clues to the whereabouts of the bunker after processing the crime scene at the Keller house. Keller’s own photos showed the interior of the bunker, as well as a view over North Bend from the entrance. Sophisticated work with those photos allowed detectives to narrow down the location. “The plan was that this evidence would have been destroyed by the fire” that Keller is alleged to have started at his home, Strachan said. “The neighbors called too quickly, and the fire department came too quickly. That was critical to what led us here today,” he added. “We asked for tips from the public, and they came through.” Detectives also received tips from citizens who had seen Keller’s truck at the Rattlesnake Ridge trailhead over the past year. Before dawn Friday, county and Seattle Police SWAT teams began a systematic search, combing the steep, heavily wooded area. Officers smelled it first, detecting smoke from the bunker before they could see it. Police set up an inner and outer perimeter around the bunker, “so he can’t get out and nobody can get in,” the sheriff said. “We want to make sure, with this violent person inside, the way he’s prepared, that our deputies are safe.” Deputies sealed off the terminus of North Bend Way Friday morning, and asked media to stay quiet about the operation, but passersby who noticed the convergence of television camera trucks quickly guessed that Keller had been found. Based on the photos detectives discovered of the bunker at the crime scene, Keller is believed to have been building it since 2004. The bunker was fortified by logs and dirt, and goes about 20 feet back into the hillside. When gas was unsuccessful, the sheriff’s TAC 30 SWAT team used an explosive to breach the bunker roof. Inside, they found Keller’s body, many guns and a gas-powered generator. Investigators will be going through everything found in the bunker in the coming weeks. The King County Medical Examiner on Monday, April 30, determined the official cause of death and positively identified the body as Keller.

For more than 25 years, the iconic red-and-blue Clipper fleet has been ferrying commuters and vacationers alike between Seattle, Victoria, B.C. and the spectacular San Juan Islands. To keep the fleet as modern and comfortable as possible for passengers, Clipper Vacations began working with Bank of America in 2007. We initially helped by restructuring loans that enabled engine upgrades, allowing the fleet to reach speeds of up to 30 knots. More recently, we provided financing to modernize the fleet’s interior cabins. It’s a relationship that’s not only helping to get Seattle residents where they need to go — it’s also helping to generate local economic growth: the family-owned fleet employs 150 people. Clipper is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in the Puget Sound — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010. To learn more about what we’re doing to help strengthen the local economy, visit

Many questions, still few answers in bizarre brutality


s the whirl of choppers dies down and the satellite vans depart the Valley, those of us who call the place home are left to ponder the lasting effects of rare brutality. For ten days, the Keller family killings have been the mosttalked about event in the Valley, garnering rare nation- Seth Truscott al attention to Valley Record Editor a place more remembered for its scenic beauty than grisly crimes. In my five years at this desk, I’ve never seen a worse tragedy unfold in the Valley. It comes on top of two months of similar tragedies—first the deadly February 15 plane crash that killed three people on Mount Si, then the fatal shooting of a local man who broke into a Si View neighborhood residence March 30. It’s a triple shock that’s left me numb. Horrific things like these aren’t supposed happen here. The story that started to unfold

last Sunday, first with the report of a fire, then the realization that a local man may have murdered his family, and had been building a sophisticated bunker on Rattlesnake Ridge, remote but still very close to where so many people visit and hike, is shocking. Why did this happen? Could it have been prevented? Right now, we don’t really know. Peter Keller’s coworkers didn’t see any serious warning signs, and it’s doubtful whether his own family had any indication this was coming. The reasons for his actions boggle the mind. Court papers suggest Keller was preparing for some sort of end of the world. Unless more clues are forthcoming from the computer files that detectives have discovered, we may never know exactly what motivated him to end that world for his own

family in such a chilling way. There are still so many questions—why did Keller go through such elaborate measures, why did he abandon his car at the library. And after eight years of planning, why did he act now? As life finally, hopefully gets back to normal, but with so few answers, I feel compelled to reach for some kind of moral from all of this, some kind of useful lesson. Two things come to mind. First is the role that locals played in helping solve this case and ending the search. The North Bend neighbors who reported the arson fire Sunday morning may not have known that their prompt calls kept vital evidence from being destroyed. But that response was vital, as were the efforts of citizens whose tips led officers to the Rattlesnake Ridge trailhead.

While it was too late for the Keller women, these vigilant actions may possibly have saved other lives, and go to show that none of us lives in isolation—we can all play a role in preventing, witnessing or solving crimes, be they small or large. Secondly, it’s worth underlining the skill and dedication that we witnessed in our police as they tracked Keller to ground. County and regional SWAT team members risked their lives and exhausted their bodies on the hill, using non-lethal gas, flying in a negotiator and giving the man time to give himself up. The expense, time, technology and effort that went into this response is amazing. I believe they did their utmost to bring him out of that hole alive, so that we could have justice and some answers. Unfortunately, it looks like the answers will have to wait.

Then they told him their own story. “The supreme being, the creator, was so beautiful, he never spoke… but when words came out, they were like song. He lifted his head into nothingness, and sang us into creation,” Kempf said. His favorite story right now, though, is about a people whose history and culture extends back 13,000 years, farther than Judaism, farther than Chinese culture. The people are his own, linked from coast to coast and from the top to the bottom of North America. The best part of the story? It’s completely true, with physical evidence to prove it. A 13,000 year-old pair of sticks carved from mammoth bone, and a large sharp stone knife, or Clovis point, found near Wenatchee several years ago, are the proof, and the link to tribes all over the country, he says. The pieces are not sled runners, as archeologists originally supposed, but components of the “stick game,” called Sla-hal in the Snoqualmie tribe, but with different names in every part of the country where tribes still play it today. The game spread, as the tribe did, through intermarriage, across the United States. People still play it

Carnation resident Lorene F. Bardy, 53, is being sought as a missing and possibly endangered person by the King County Sheriff’s Office. Bardy has reportedly not been seen since the early morning hours of Thursday, April 26, at her home in the 29200 block of Northeast 52nd Street. She has life-threatening health issues and is in need of medications that are still at her home. Bardy is described as five feet, seven inches tall, 125 pounds, with brown-blonde hair and blue eyes. She has pierced ears and wears corrective lenses. If you have seen Bardy, call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 or 911.

today, following the same set of rules that, as far as anyone knows, have always been used, for 13,000 years. “The anthropologists say you can’t get better continuity than that!” Kempf said. Sla-hal is a combination of song and strategy. More than a game, it was also a source of power and protection, and it was a tool. “It’s called the game of peace,” Kempf said, noting that warring tribes sometimes played the game, thousands on each side joining in power songs, instead of engaging in battle. “The elders said way back when, we used to war with giants, and we would settle disputes with them playing this game,” he added. Sla-hal is also the name of the gathering May 5 that Kemp has organized for some 60 tribes and about 400 people at Seattle Pacific University on Saturday, May 5. This firstof-its-kind event, Kempf says, will be “a family conversation” about not just the game, but the cultural heritage of the people, and the effect this discovery may have. “The families that wrought America are always being told who they are and where they’re from and their identity… by anthropologists, by museums, and they don’t even know what the artifacts are,” Kempf said.

For the second year in a row, Snoqualmie Elementary School readers claimed the Battle of the Books championship and trophy. The team of Emma Duim (captain), Vicky Copeland, Taylor Talbott, Abbigal Triou and Grace Wendlick bested the top teams from Cascade View, North Bend, Fall City, and Opstad in the annual district-wide contest, held Friday, April 27 at North Bend Elementary School. As always, the final Battle was a tense affair, the culmination of months of dedicated reading and memorization, and multiple rounds of elimination at each elementary to designate a school champ. Participating students read up to 14 books selected by the elementary librarians for the competition. The books were announced last spring, giving the competitors, third through fifth graders, almost a full year to read them all, although each

needed to have only three read by the time they signed up for teams in January. Many teams enthusiastically took on the challenge this year. Fall City, for example, fielded nearly 20 teams in early rounds of competition, but the mainly-boys team, the Alpha Books, won the school championship to advance to the district final. North Bend Librarian Lisa Radmer quizzed the fivemember teams on characters, descriptions, and actions from each of the books. Inspired team members leaned into huddles to share their answers. When inspiration didn’t strike, they thought harder and harder, fidgeted, shook heads, patted tummies, or quietly despaired, head in hands. Audience members, comprised of other Battle teams from each school, eliminated in earlier rounds of competition, and smiling, photo-snapping parents, cheered loudly and waved banners with every correct answer in the contest, prompting several reminders from the officiating librarians for quiet. This year’s book list included 11 Birthdays, Out of the Dust, Honus and Me, My Life as a

Local students awarded National Merit Scholarship honors Two Valley students are among the latest winners in the 57th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Winners include: • Riley H.

Self-governing Opstad fifth graders send aid to Haitian children Fifth grade students in Ileen O’Leary’s class at Opstad Elementary held a bake sale on Thursday, April 19. The lunchtime event was a fundraiser for the children of Haiti. One of the fifth graders’ parents had gone to Haiti to volunteer and visited the classroom recently to share her story. She talked about the devastation of the country after a 2010 earthquake. The class is currently practicing selfgovernment and decided unanimously to hold a bake sale for the children of Haiti. The money will go to a group working with children and families in Furcy, a country town outside the capital city.

SES team repeats performance, claims Book Battle trophy, again



Snoqualmie win, the sequel

‘Grease’ show comes to CHS


Apparently many people had to move in with relatives after most of the structure in Port au Prince were destroyed in a Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake. Furcy is a poor community without sanitary drinking water, or indoor plumbing. Water must be carried up a steep hill to the town by the people for drinking, cooking and washing. The fifth graders decided to place jars in various business around North Bend, which will be collected at the end of May. Between the bake sale, donations, and the classroom collections, they earned $340 so far.

Breaking the personal record is the small victory that track and field athletes chase and earn constantly. For Mitchell, the improvement that he made Thursday—a new personal best with a five-foot, eightinch jump—is “the best feeling in my life.” It’s only the beginning. Following her personal best in the girls’ mile, Mount Si sophomore Delaney Hollis was thrilled, sharing her experience. She and running mate Annie Shaw, a Mount Si freshman, have been alternately breaking their best mile times. With a 6:07.9 time on Thursday, Hollis was on top of the world. Explaining her approach, Delaney compares it to her fall sport, soccer. “When I’m out here, I focus on the closest girl to me,” the sophomore said. “I keep my eye on her, I speed up to her gradually. I just tick them off, one at a time.” “Track is good because it gets me out every day, running,” Hollis added. She can’t do it by herself—Hollis feeds off the energy of those around here. “I am an extremely competitive person,” she said.

Defying gravity Mount Si runners and throwers racked up triumphs personally and for their team—their efforts led Thursday to a strong team victory for both the boys and girls teams. “I’ll take that!” said freshman Sarah Brevick, one of the upcoming prospects for girls throwers. She had broken 80 feet in an early javelin flight, and went on to cap an 82.9-foot hurl. “I just wanted to get a PR,” Brevick said. She’s stoked to be part of the team: Coach Dave Ovall is “Awesome,” and “It’s fun throwing a spear as far as you can.” Back at the high jump, senior Ryan Olson broke down the physics of human flight, as he, Mitchell and teammate Jon Proctor pushed for PRs. Olson explains that the centrifugal force of the runner carriers them toward the pole. “Your body is telling you that you need to go into the bar,” he said. “Really, you just need to jump…as high as you can.” Smith has been running a lot to strengthen his calves, and training with the jumping coach. He’s got the muscles to go even higher, he says.

Della Streich 2/3/1918 - 4/2/2012

On April 2, 2012 our beautiful little mother went to be with our Lord and Savior. Mom was born during a blizzard on 2/3/1918 in Campbell, Minnesota to Ward and Marie (Peterson) Neuschwander. She was the first of four children born of that union. Two brothers and a sister were to follow. In August 1937 she met Norman Streich and three weeks later married him. Everyone said that it wouldn’t last, but it lasted for 58 years until Norman passed away in 1995. Norman and Della farmed for awhile in Minnesota. In 1953 they loaded up the family which was now larger by two more girls; Mardell and Marlene and drove to Arizona. Jobs were not plentiful for a dam builder in Arizona. Della and family moved to Riverdale, North Dakota where Norman was hired by Peter Kiewit Construction and Della went to work in the Kiewit mess hall. Della quit that job when she became pregnant with daughter number three, Norma Jean. She was a real live dolly for Marlene to play with. They moved to Great Falls, Montana to build another dam. Della stayed home to be a mother and housewife. Her final move was to Washington State where the family bought a home and lived in North Bend for 20 years. Norman went to work for Weyerhauser and Della worked at the North Bend Nursing Home and for Boeing. Upon retiring from Boeing Della & Norman purchase property at Timberlakes for the family to live and retire together for eternity. Norman passed away in 1995 and Della continued to live at Timberlakes until September 15, 2011 when she moved to the Harstine Islands Adult Family Home. Della was preceded in death by her parents, husband, both brothers and a grandson. She is survived by 3 daughters, 2 sons-in-law, sister Maryann and husband Clarke, 2 grandsons, 1 granddaughter and numerous great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews. The family gives its heartfelt thanks to Della’s caregivers for all the help she received as she neared the end of her life; the girls from CCS; the owners and staff at Harstine Island Adult Family Home and her visitors from Providence Hospice. As per Della’s request there will be no funeral services. Her ashes will be spread later this year. 616696

Scouts, volunteers beautify North Bend The girls of North Bend Girl Scout Troops 42388, 40944, and 43660, along with volunteers from the local community and Puget Sound Energy, came together on Friday, April 13, for North Bend’s Arbor Day celebration at Torguson Park. Second and third graders worked as hard as the adults, preparing the planting pits, placing the trees, and backfilling the holes for 15 new Red Cascade Mountain Ash trees in the parking lot at Torguson Park. This year, the City was awarded a Tree City USA Award from the Department of Natural Resources and the National Arbor Day Foundation, for its commitment to providing and caring for public trees. For Arbor Day, Puget Sound Energy donated the trees, while Ryan Kolodejchuk prepared the tree pits. For more information on the City’s tree program, opportunities for volunteer service, or the City of North Bend’s Adopt-a-Park Program, please contact Mike McCarty at mmccarty@, or at (425) 888-7649.
