Snoqualmie Police Department Update

At 3:46 p.m. on January 31, 2024, Snoqualmie-North Bend police officers responded to 964 Stone Brook Dr SW in North Bend for a Death Investigation after maintenance workers discovered a deceased male during a welfare check conducted as part of a formal eviction process.

During the initial investigation, officers discovered another deceased body in a large freezer located in the apartment’s garage. The Coalition of Small Police Agencies Major Crimes Task Force and the King County Medical Examiner’s Office were then called in to assist with the full investigation.

Autopsies were completed on February 5th, 2024, and determined the male was killed by a self-inflicted single gunshot wound and the female victim was killed by a single gunshot prior to being placed in the freezer. With assistance from the Medical Examiner’s office, both subjects were identified as Judy M. Loewe, 60-years-old, of North Bend, WA and David E. Loewe, 60-years-old, of North Bend, WA.
