Three bodies found shot, hidden in western Washington compound

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the deaths of three people whose bullet-riddled bodies were found concealed in a compound known for hosting transients in western Washington.

The Peninsula Daily News reports the gruesome scene was discovered on a welfare check Monday in Port Angeles.

Investigators found the bodies of 57-year-old Darrell C. Iverson and his son 27-year-old Jordan D. Iverson covered by tarps and debris in the front of the house where they lived.

The younger man’s girlfriend, 26-year-old Tiffany A. May was also discovered in a locked outbuilding.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office says dozens of shots were fired by one shooter and that they’re investigating multiple persons of interest who knew the victims.

There’s a history of transient people staying on the property but none were there when investigators arrived.
