The Everett Daily Herald reported that a Bonney Lake resident, Johnathan Frohs, was arrested in Snohomish County after a body was found in a shallow grave outside Granite Falls last month.
44 year-old Frohs is described as 6' 6" and over 400 pounds, with an extensive criminal history that includes assualt, extortion, kidnapping and drug dealing. His biker nickname is "Bigfoot."
Investigators believe that Frohs belonged to a gang that held a married couple hostage in a home near Marysville in December. A man in the house was allegedly robbed and his car was stolen; the couple was held hostage for several hours and threatened with death and robbed. According to police reports, one of the suspected robbers reportedly went outside and donned a hockey mask. When he came back in, police believed Frohs killed him accidentally.
