United States: His tenants are bad payers, he dismembers them

Jessica Lewis and her boyfriend, Austin Wenner, were gunned down over rent.


A 62-year-old man was indicted Monday for the murder of two young people, perpetrated last June in Seattle (Washington). The discovery of the remains of Jessica Lewis, 35, and Austin Wenner, 27, had caused a stir at the start of the summer.

June 19, teenagers having fun with a new app had come across a suspicious suitcase washed up on the waterfront in Seattle. One of these young people had posted a video of this macabre find on TikTok. Subsequently, the police said they had found other suitcases and that they did contain human remains.

Michael Dudley was arrested at his Seattle home last Wednesday, reports the «Seattle Times». He was questioned and then taken into custody, and his bail was set at $ 5 million. Authorities believe the double murder dates back to June 9. According to documents consulted by «People», Jessica and Austin were renting a room in the 60-year-old’s house during lockdown, but struggled to pay their monthly rent of $ 1,500.

“Please don’t do that”

On the evening of June 9, Dudley allegedly had an argument with them because he wanted them to leave his house. Neighbors say they heard loud voices and a man begging, “Please don’t do this. Just let me go. ” Immediately afterwards, shots were heard.

In the couple’s bedroom, blood and bullet holes were found. The suspect confirmed that the couple had stayed at his home but could not explain the presence of bullet holes in the room. Jessica, a mother of four, was shot and killed. Only one was found in the body of Austin, whose companion she had been for eight years.
