SAMMAMISH, Wash. (AP) - Two men linked to a man’s murder in Sammamish, Washington, have been detained in Canada and may face charges there.

Ian MacDonald, a police spokesman in Abbotsford, British Columbia, says police are investigating possible crimes, including possession of stolen property, fraudulent credit card use and crossing into Canada illegally. He said Thursday afternoon that they had not yet been charged.

Kevin Patterson and an 18-year-old man were arrested outside an Abbotsford motel Wednesday night, hours after police found Patterson’s housemate dead at a home in Sammamish, about 20 miles east of Seattle.

King County sheriff’s Sgt. DB Gates says Patterson, who is 20, lived at the home. She says the 18-year-old was at the house at the time of the killing, though his involvement was unclear.

The victim has not been identified.

Officers were conducting a welfare check Wednesday morning at the home when they found a man dead inside.
