BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A suspect in last week’s murder in South Bellingham has killed himself.
Bellingham Police questioned 33-year-old Coastguardsman Michael G. Arnold about the death of 59-year-old Abigail Gullotta, but they didn’t have enough evidence to arrest him.
Shortly after he was released, police say Arnold disappeared from the Coast Guard base in Seattle and drained his bank account.
On Saturday, detectives learned that Arnold had fled to a family-owned cabin in Arizona where he was planning to kill himself.
U.S. Marshalls went to the cabin and found Arnold dead.
