Any articles? MSM?
The #1 suspect is dead. Possibly he can now be identified; what are the rules here? Most people following this case know who this guy is. He owned a business that was only a few miles from from where Julie vanished. That hardly makes him a suspect. Apparently he was uncooperative when contacted by Law Enforcement. That is not necessarily incriminating but it is a good way to set yourself up as a suspect. From I found out about him, he seems to be a Right Wing pro-gun, anti-government type that hates law enforcement and feels absolutely no sense of civic responsibility. That does not make him a killer.

He may be on here but I won't name him. Late 60's, died of a quite unfortunate accident it seems.
I was born and raised in Spokane. By 1987 I had graduated and moved away. But I’ve just moved back to Spokane. I had not heard of this case before. I’d love to assist in any way with efforts already underway.
I really hope the police can search his property, it could be a graveyard.
Unfound just did a podcast on Julie and the poi who recently died. Check it out! It sounds like now that the guy is dead, there may be searches for Julie and another woman he’s suspected of murdering, although details weren’t discussed. Apparently his wife still owns the property so time will tell if anything comes of it. There is circumstantial evidence that he was an a acquaintance of Julie and was bothering her. Many people were frightened of this man, so perhaps more information will come out now that he’s gone.
Where can I find the pod cast?

Amateur sleuth says 25-year-old case of missing BPA worker Julie Weflen 'can be solved'
Updated Jan 10, 2019; Posted Apr 22, 2012
Locker never searched
...investigation languished, but it was jump-started recently when retired BPA engineer John Polos of Vancouver organized a group of retired Bonneville employees and started again. ...the lack of a break in the police investigation nagged at him.
...police had never searched Weflen's locker at Spokane's G.H. Bell Substation. ...BPA workers had emptied the locker and stored her belongings in a padlocked bin. ...detectives collected the contents.
To BPA, Polos' discovery brought Weflen's disappearance front and center once again. The federal agency last month offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her abductor.

I worked on this case pretty heavily for a year or so. Cold case knows nothing in Spokane, not even if there was DNA retrieved from the glasses found at the scene. The POI is dead, the new management of the business is out, the business is closed and the property is owned by the widow. How does one go about contacting the widow?
