Fight Over Political Sign Leaves Arlington, WA Woman Dead

Hot heads do not prevail. When is the insanity going to stop?
Arrested over the weekend, a 55-year-old Washington state woman and her husband after shooting and killing another woman over the alleged theft of a political sign.

On Saturday, Skagit County Sheriff’s deputies came to the home in Big Lake after being called to investigate a fight. A second call to the same location came in minutes later, from someone who said his friend had been shot. When deputies arrived, they found a 32-year-old woman dead in the driveway. That woman was from Arlington, Washington, about 20 miles south of Big Lake.

Deputies have determined that the couple and the dead woman didn’t know each other and that the fight began over the alleged theft.

The names of the victim and the suspects have not been released. Full Story here at the Skagit Valley Herald.

UPDATE 2/17:

(Big Lake, WA) -- Police are releasing the identity of a woman who was shot to death during a fight over the alleged theft of a political sign in Skagit County. KING-5 reports 32-year-old Kamran Cohee was killed Saturday evening outside a home in Big Lake. The Skagit County Sheriff's Office says Cohee was in a truck with a man who allegedly pulled over to remove a political sign from the suspect's front yard. The 58-year-old man who owns the home reportedly saw what was happening and went outside to confront the man, leading to a fight in which the homeowner's 55-year-old wife came out with a gun and shot Cohee, killing her. The woman was arrested for investigation of second-degree murder, and her husband was arrested for fourth-degree assault. Police aren't saying what the political sign was for, but KING-5 reports it was a sign for failed gubernatorial candidate Loren Culp.
