Seattle Police officers went into slain talk host Mike Webb's house twice over months and didn't see, smell, or grok Webb's body in the basement?
Even though you say they had a cadaver dog?! (These dogs' noses are so sensitive they can sniff out bodies under running water, in piles of rubble, or under many feet of avalanched snow).
Even though the next door neighbor reported flies thick on a basement window; and Mike's brother, at about the time the dog supposedly went in the house, reported a smell so strong he had to wear a mask?
Everyone's trying to understand this.
Not only were family and friends worried sick, but a murder case was going colder, and colder. We know missing persons cases aren't top priority and that it's easy to second guess cops who are never forthcoming with ongoing investigations, but that they missed this body is truly baffling.
Meanwhile, Marian Bogni, Mike Webb's sister, arrived in Seattle
Saturday to do the sad, sisterly duties of picking up Mike's remains for
transport to the Bay Area to be buried.
He'll be buried near his brother and his mom, both of whom have died in the last few years.
A little memorial has begun on the corner near his Queen Anne house at 3rd Avenue West, and Smith Street with cards and flowers, an in-studio picture of him at KIRO with Rep. Jim McDermott, and producer Jeremy Grater.
There's a '40' of his favorite drink, RockStar, and a candle.
