Okanogan deputies looking for teens in homicide investigation
Shalin Alltus and Parker Bachtold, wanted for questioning in connection with a murder in Okanogan County.

Okanogan County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a homicide that occurred Saturday evening. 

Just before 6:30 p.m. deputies responded to a death at 151 Hosheit Road out of Riverside. At the scene police spoke with a friend who said he found the victim at the home. 

At the home deputies found the body of 39-year-old Patrick Alltus.

The Okanogan Sheriff’s Office is treating this as a murder. They say there is evidence of violence at the home, but aren’t sure of an exact cause of death. 

Deputies are now looking for two teenagers who were living at the residence. They hope to question 16-year-old Shalin Alltus and 16-year-old Parker Bachtold.

Alltus’ pickup and the two teenagers are missing. The vehicle is listed as stolen as they look for the teens for questioning. 

Deputies believe the two teens could be armed with a pistol and a shotgun. 

The teens and the vehicle were contacted by law enforcement on October 1st. It’s unclear when the homicide occurred. 

Deputies are looking for a 2004 Gray Ford F250 Pickup with Washington license plate C90793A.

If you see the vehicle or the two teens, pleas call the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office at 509-422-7232.
