Ex-boyfriend questioned in Kirkland murder case

KIRKLAND — The death of a 28-year-old mother of four has rocked the Kirkland community.

amyAmy Gang’s body was discovered by her mother in their Kirkland home Monday. She was strangled in her own bedroom.

Police are questioning Amy’s ex-boyfriend as a person of interest in the case. There has been no arrests.

Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray says they are getting close.

“Fairly close … we believe our detectives are doing some further follow-up, canvassing the area and talking to folks,” said Murray.

Gang lived with her family at a home on Northeast 130th Place in Kirkland. Detectives say that’s where she was killed sometime on Monday – and that she knew her killer.

“Could be an ex-boyfriend,” said Murray. “At this time I can’t give his name, we are confident the person of interest knew the victim.”

Detectives are still asking for help from the public. Anyone with information is urged to call police.
