Gabriel Michael Davies was reported missing Wednesday, and his vehicle was found abandoned on Tilley Road in Olympia, Washington that evening.
Deputies found items strewn about, a small amount of blood, and a smashed cell phone at the scene of Davies’ vehicle. For two days this was a missing person case.
Shortly after he was found, he was booked into the Remann Hall Juvenile Detention Center after being accused of burglary, second-degree murder, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department responded to a welfare check on a 51-year-old man and found him deceased inside his home. Detectives spent Thursday and Friday processing the scene and collecting evidence before arresting two 16-year-old males.
The victim failed to show up for work for four days, and deputies found his body. They arrested two teenage suspects, one of which was Davies.
