Former Seattle Cop Suspected In Several Murders


The high-profile, cold-case murder of Bellevue realtor Mike Emert is on the verge of being solved.

Both Emert’s widow — and confidential police sources — tell KIRO Team 7 Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne that previously undisclosed DNA evidence identifies the killer as a recently deceased Seattle police officer.

Halsne first confirmed this information in February, but delayed publicly airing until now at the specific request of the King County Sheriff’s Department. Detectives worried his reporting would interfere with an active, ongoing multi-state criminal investigation involving someone ordering professional “hits.”
