    Family member thinks Lacey couple murdered by tenant due to eviction

    45-year-old Timothy Burke is facing murders charges for allegedly killing Karen Koep and her husband Davido.

    Davido is reportedly Burke’s landlord. A family member told FOX 13 News they believe the murder was possibly due to an eviction, and court documents provide more evidence for that theory.

    Deputies also reported finding evidence that showed someone dragged the bodies of the victims into the garage. Inside the garage, Koep’s car was missing.

    Deputies say they linked Burke to the crime because a surveillance video captured footage of him using Davido’s debit card.

    Police report that when they went to arrest Burke for the murder, he was hiding off of a trail.

    Documents say Burke had called 911 to the property several times. Documents also say Burke has mental health issues.

    Koep’s sister told FOX 13 News she believes the eviction is the motive behind Burke’s alleged actions.

    “I just hope that, you know, all of it has been resolved. I just still keep thinking, gosh, is there more to this that we don’t know about? I hope that Tim Burke was the only one involved,” said Pauline Dutton, Koep’s sister.

    The judge denied the request and ruled that Burke would stay behind bars without bail.

    FOX 13 News is naming Burke due to the nature of the crime and because of his connection to the victims.
