The Washington State Department of Corrections Southwest Region Community Response Unit along with the United States Marshall's Service, WSP Swat and detectives from the WSP Criminal Investigation Division made the arrest yesterday in Federal Way. David Warren Marshall, 19 of Federal Way was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of Vehicular Homicide and Arson. Marshall was also booked on two warrants, one was for a felony weapons violation and the other was for a felony narcotics violation.

The Washington State Patrol would like to express our great appreciation for the incredible job our Criminal Investigation Division detectives did in this case and the assistance from the other agencies mentioned above. Without their help, the arrest and closure would not have been possible.
