The Morning Blotter: Ballard Couple Returns Home To Find Their Bathroom Covered In Poo

A Ballard couple had to cut a trip out of town short after someone covered their bathroom with crap while they were out of town.

The couple went out of town earlier this month, and had their daughter come by the house—on 21st NW and NW 97th—every day to feed their cats and keep an eye on the home, a police report says.

When their daughter arrived at the home on August 10th, she smelled a strong odor from the bathroom.

The daughter went into the bathroom and found feces smeared all over the place.

The woman called her parents, who came home and reported the incident to police.

The couple told SPD they had roofers working on the home while they were out of town, and police found no evidence of forced entry at the home. However, police did find a screen door lying on the ground outside the home, which the couple said was “unusual.”
