    Police in standoff with survivalist murder in his underground bunker suspect

    Police in North Bend, Wash., say they have laid siege to a huge earthen bunker in the Cascade Mountains where they believe Peter Keller, a self-avowed survivalist, has gone to ground after allegedly murdering his wife and teenage daughter.
    The secret mountainside fort, which fits the survialist community’s description of a “bug out location,” or BOL, is “extensive” and intricate, police say, with multiple entrances and levels. King County, Wash., police believe Mr. Keller, a computer engineer, built it over a span of eight years in a location several hundred yards from the head of the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail, about 30 miles east of Seattle.

    Police believe the fort is well stocked with, among other things, high-powered weaponry, food, water, and gas masks. Police managed to fire one tear gas volley through one of its entrances in order to smoke Mr. Keller out, but it didn’t work. Police say the gas may not have penetrated through the whole complex.
    Keller has been on the run since last Sunday. Detectives used photographs found on a family computer to triangulate and pinpoint the general area where the bunker might be hidden. The standoff began Friday when police found the bunker after smelling a whiff of wood smoke and hearing noises coming from inside the fort.

    Update:

    Survivalist and murder suspect Peter Keller is believed to be dead after law enforcement blew a portion of the lid off his bunker and found a body, a pistol and a pool of blood, according to King County sheriff Steve Strachan.
