Bremerton man arrested in 2015 death of 87-year-old man

BREMERTON, Wash. — Bremerton police have arrested a suspect in the 2015 homicide of an 87-year-old man.

The Kitsap Sun reports 45-year-old Craig W. Miller was arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of murder.

Floyd Zumwalt was beaten to death in his East Bremerton home in November 2015.

Police Detective Marty Garland said he couldn’t comment on what investigators believe was the motive but said Miller had been a person of interest since Zumwalt’s death.

Garland says he and another detective built the case on physical evidence along with statements from witnesses and neighbors.
