WA - Joseph Moisa, 66, & Michael Henderson, 20, murdered, Spanaway, 17 Aug 2014
A sex offender suspected of killing his two roommates in Frederickson claims the two victims were "grooming" boys for sex, according to court documents.
The suspect, 40-year-old Richard Atkisson, pleaded not guilty in court Monday on a fugitive warrant out of California. Prosecutors have yet to file charges in the double homicide, but Atkisson is being held without bail for investigation of murder.
A sheriff's deputy found the bodies of the two victims, 20-year-old Michael Henderson and 66-year-old Joseph Moisa, Sunday morning while doing a routine sex offender address check at the Frederickson home.

A man has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder in the first degree in the deaths of two men found beaten to death in a Spanaway home on Sunday...
Documents say Atkisson told detectives he decided to kill both men and he thought about it and planned it for about a day.
The documents say Atkisson told detectives he used a pipe to beat one roommate and later placed a bag over his head until he stopped breathing because he "was just not dying." He used the same pipe to kill the other roommate, documents say.
