In this Wednesday, May 25, 2016 photo, a bouquet of red, white, and blue flowers at lower right that was left by detectives with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office marks the location where the remains of a couple were found the day before near Oso, Wash. The killings of Patrick Shunn and Monique Patenaude were a knife-twist of heartache in Oso, a tiny, rural community northeast of Seattle that was devastated in 2014 by the nation's worst landslide disaster. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)OSO, Wash. (AP) — In a clearing 10 miles up a gravel logging road, freshly cut hemlock branches cover the root well of a wind-toppled fir. Atop the boughs, a bouquet of red, white and blue carnations left by detectives marks the grim discovery they made here: the shallow grave of a local couple shot to death six weeks ago, apparently in a feud with a former neighbor who remains at large.
