Hunt for murder suspect continues
July 4, 2008 · Updated 11:51 AM
Police continued the search Thursday for Raven Marlyne Hudson, 21, accused of shooting and killing a Bremerton woman last week on the steps of a Sixth Street apartment home.
Bremerton police sent out a press release Monday asking for assistance from the public in helping to locate Hudson. Hudson was believed to be in the company of her boyfriend, Nicholas Todd Duke Pines, 41.
Police say Pines helped Hudson get out of Bremerton and now believe she is hiding out somewhere in western Washington, most likely in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
Pines turned himself into authorities Tuesday morning in Port Orchard. He has been arrested and charged with rendering criminal assistance in the first degree and is currently being held in the Kitsap County Jail.
Information led police to believe Hudson was in an apartment in Ballard Wednesday. A search warrant was obtained and S.W.A.T. teams from the Seattle Police Department responded but Hudson was not at the residence.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Hudson, who has been charged with first-degree murder.
Police have said Hudson argued with Janet Eaton, 43, a stranger to her, at the Sixth Street home before taking out a weapon and shooting her.
Police still hope for help from the public in locating Hudson, but urge citizens not to approach her if she is seen, but rather to call 911 immediately. Hudson is considered to be armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Bremerton Police Detective Division at (360) 473-5228 or 911. Those who wish to leave information anonymously may call the Bremerton Police Departments tip line at (360) 473-5481.
