Man had threatened couple, court documents say

Posted:

SEATTLE (AP) -- The Latest on the disappearance and presumed slayings of an Arlington, Washington, couple.

Court documents released Monday say that a man wanted in connection with the disappearance and presumed slayings of a married couple previously threatened to shoot them for cutting brush between their two properties, the Seattle Times reports.

The Times says that John Blaine Reed, 53, who shared a common driveway with Patrick Shunn and his wife, Monique Patenaude, "reportedly stated he would shoot or assault them if they didn't leave" him alone, investigators wrote in an affidavit for a search warrant.

The newspaper says that Reed's alleged threat, which Shunn later reported to Snohomish County sheriff's deputies, was just part of an "ongoing and constant" dispute between the couple and Reed.
