Kent Police investigate woman's death as a possible homicide

25-year-old SeaTac woman died after May 13 dispute with man at 7-Eleven store on 83rd Avenue South

Kent Police are investigating the death of a 25-year-old SeaTac woman as a possible homicide after she died following a dispute with a man at the 7-Eleven store at 22422 83rd Ave. S.

Officers responded at about 1:39 a.m. Saturday, May 13 in reference to a woman inside the store who needed medical aid, according to a Kent Police statement.

Officers found the woman conscious and having trouble breathing. Puget Sound Fire and King County Medic One arrived, moved her to an ambulance and provided lifesaving aid. The woman’s condition deteriorated rapidly, requiring CPR, according to police. The woman died at the scene.

Witnesses told police that the woman had been in a verbal dispute with a man just prior to entering the store. The argument escalated and the man reportedly struck the woman in the upper body area that caused her to fall. The woman and the man appeared to have known each other, according to police.

As of Monday morning, May 15, the King County Medical Examiner’s Office had not yet released the woman’s name or a cause and manner of death.

Anyone with information about this incident, is asked to call the Kent Police tipline at 253-856-5808 or email KPDTipsLine@kentwa.gov.
