Murdering Susann Smith, Hour #1
Bothell, Washington was the scene of a gruesome murder on February 12, 2013 when Susann Smith
, mother of two children, was found beaten with an axe and stabbed in the bathtub of her home.
Going through a divorce, and planning to take her children back to her native Germany, Smith most likely didn’t realize she was in the most dangerous time of her life, especially in light of reports of abuse within the marriage.
Her estranged husband, Alan Smith, is poised to gain custody of the children and move back into the marital home. He is named as a “person of interest,” not a suspect, but there are reports of circumstantial evidence that should keep him on the radar.
Just a year prior to the murder of Susann Smith, the state of Washington was handling the news that Josh Powell, husband of still missing Susan Powell, had killed his children and himself by incinerating the house wherea CPS worker brought them for a visit. We can only hope that all eyes will be on every move that Alan Smith makes with his children.
, Regional Assistant Editor for the Bothell Reporter
has been following the story and will discuss what has happened, the evidence that is public knowledge, and any further updates of the case.
