Beach Drive murder: Detectives pursuing ‘leads,’ West Seattle Crime Prevention Council told

First update from tonight’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting: Southwest Precinct Operations Lt. Pierre Davis had wrapped up his crime-trends update without mentioning last month’s Beach Drive murder, but during open Q/A afterward, he was finally asked about the case. Still an active investigation, he said, adding that detectives are following up “specific leads,” though he had no details to share. Five weeks have now passed since 51-year-old Greggette Guy of Kent was found dead in the water south of Cormorant Cove Park, a half-mile south of where she had apparently left her car the night before to go for a waterfront walk; we checked with key figures in the case at the one=month mark (here’s our April 11th story). The case was a major reason acting Parks Superintendent Christopher Williams spoke to the group tonight; nothing revelatory in his remarks, but toplines and video are coming up in our full meeting report.

    I understand the reluctance of detectives to speak too openly about their investigation but this has hit hard at the community of West Seattle and at least some comments would be useful and perhaps even reassuring.

    I know the SPD will solve this just like they solved other recent murders in our community. It might take some time but the SPD, and justice, will prevail.

    any mention on what the city plans on doing to prevent crimes around the lower area of Emma Schmitz park at this meeting?

      No specifics but I will have the rest of the report up later tonight (am at a different meeting now). I do have Christopher Williams’ section of the meeting up on YouTube already –

Sorry, comment time is over.
