On April 12th, the Mason County Sheriff’s Office asked rangers to assist with a domestic homicide which occurred at a Lake Cushman residence just outside the southeast corner of the park. A local resident had reported that he had shot his wife at her request due to her failing health. Rangers were requested because of an extended response time by sheriff’s deputies. Ranger Ken Davis was first on scene and provided containment while waiting for Mason County deputies to arrive. The man was cooperative when contacted and taken into custody. Davis also assisted with clearing the inside of the house and outbuildings. The victim was found inside the house and pronounced dead on scene. Mason County is conducting the investigation.
