The search continues by Auburn Police to find the person responsible for the killing of Seth Frankel, a city of Kent video program coordinator.
“There’s still no update and nothing new to report,” said Auburn Police Sgt. David Colglazier, during a June 9 phone interview. “There is still followup being done, but nothing we can put out now (to the public).”
Frankel, 41, was found dead May 22 lying on the floor of his Auburn home in the 100 block of D Street Northwest.
He died May 21 from stab wounds to the arms and neck and the manner of death was homicide, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
“The challenge for detectives is they have things they are working on but we don’t want to put out any tips about what we are looking at,” Colglazier said. “I can assure you there are things we are working on.”
Colglazier said if the person involved in Frankel’s death knew what information detectives were checking on it could affect the investigation.
Auburn detectives are working on the case with the Crime Laboratory Division of the Washington State Patrol. The lab provides forensic services to local law-enforcement agencies.
The police investigation has included numerous interviews with people who knew Frankel.
Frankel joined the city of Kent in 2007 after 11 years as a director of production at a PBS station in Eureka, Calif. He was the employee behind most of the city meetings and events shown on Kent TV21.
Frankels family had a private memorial service for him May 27 at the Kent Senior Activity Center.
