Benton City Man Was Likely Killed, Likely No One Will Pay
Les Young got drunk at a Benton City bar last fall and then stumbled home to never wake up again. Was it murder? Police would like to charge Craig Nunamaker, who admitted to robbing Young while he was semi-conscious, but they can't... so far.A new autopsy report revealed Young died of head trauma -- very likely caused by another person (murder). But drunk people fall. In fact, video footage outside the bar shows him falling as he left.
So even though police are very confident Young was murdered, and they have a prime suspect with motive at the scene of the crime, they can't do anything because the autopsy doesn't prove anything.
If more evidence emerges I could totally see this ending up in one of those real-life murder mystery shows.
