Suspects jailed in stabbing death
By SCOTT NORTH
EDMONDS — A killing in Edmonds on March 28 appears to be a drug deal gone bad, according to police reports.
Codie Allen, 21, of Poulsbo, and Loresa Pilon, 28, of Everett, are being held in Snohomish County jail in connection with the death. They are both being held on charges of second degree murder, and first degree robbery, according to the jail register.
Police found the stabbing victim, a man, 23, in a parking lot in the 22800 block of 100th Avenue W., just off Edmonds Way. Officers had been called about two men fighting.
Police quickly tracked down a car believed associated with the incident. The man inside was bloody and had minor injuries that required hospital treatment.
When questioned by Edmonds police, Allen reportedly said that he and Pilon had met the victim to arrange a drug deal, but had instead decided to steal his cash. The man resisted. He pulled a knife and wound up being fatally stabbed with his own weapon, police were told.
The victim’s money reportedly was found on Pilon.
Bail for Allen is set at $250,000.
Bail for Pilon is $100,000.
