Decomposed Body Found at the Home of Missing ex-KIRO Radio Talk Show host Mike Webb

Former KIRO radio talk show host Mike Webb has been missing since April, 2007. This afternoon a badly decomposed body was found at Webb’s rental house. According to police the body was so badly decomposed they could not determine sex, age or race.

A severely decomposed body was found this afternoon at the rental home of former KIRO radio talk-show host Mike Webb, who has been missing since April.

A property manager found the body shortly before 3 p.m. at the home in the 2500 block of 3rd Avenue W., according to police. The body was so decomposed that investigators were unable to immediately determine its sex, age or race, said Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel. Police wouldn’t say where in the home the body was found. (Seattle Times)

One would naturally ask the question, why wasn’t the house searched if Mike Webb was missing? According to police they were not allowed to enter. Wouldn’t one think that the stench from the home of a decomposing body and the fact that Webb was considered missing would make entering a home legal?

He said officers had previously been to the home as part of that investigation, but could not legally enter.

UPDATE: Radio host Mike Webb stabbed to death

The King County Medical Examiner’s office has confirmed that Mike Webb died of multiple stab wounds sometime after April 13. The death of the liberal radio host now is being investigated as a homicide.

Seattle police crime scene investigators and homicide detectives were combing the house Webb had rented for 14 years in the 2500 block of Third Avenue West.

Assistant Chief Nick Metz, head of the department’s investigations division, said a property manager discovered the badly decomposed body Thursday afternoon.

In the days following his disappearance, Webb’s family members received several text messages from Webb’s cell phone but did not speak with him, according to police documents. (Seattle PI)

Human remains found at Seattle home of missing radio talk show host

Investigators were trying to determine whether the body had been moved to the house, Metz said. Several people – including missing-person investigators and Webb’s family – had been to the house in the months since the liberal radio host vanished.

Officers last examined the home within the past two weeks, police spokesman Jeff Kappel said. It was unclear whether officers entered the home at that time.

Metz declined to divulge details about where the body was found. But he did say that, when those details are publicized, the reasons why the body was not located earlier will be clear.
