North Bend Bunker demolition proceeds quickly
Joint operation to be completed in two days

NORTH BEND – In a joint operation between the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and King County Parks, demolition began today on the bunker constructed by murder suspect Peter Keller in the Rattlesnake Ridge Natural Recreation and Conservation Area.

Crews have removed and bagged material from the bunker. They also have dismantled the top of the structure and begun filling in the structure with wood and dirt. Crews anticipate completing the demolition by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 2, 2012.

"This shows the excellent teamwork between King County Parks and DNR crews. They are very talented and hardworking individuals,” said Doug McClelland, Assistant Region Manager for DNR. “The site restoration work should be completed on Wednesday and debris taken to the landfill."
