A Washington man told police he killed his wife in self-defense then stored her body at a self-storage facility.
According to Thurston County sheriff’s detectives, Sheldon Plummer, a sergeant at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, told investigators he had killed his wife, Winter Plummer, during an argument in February when she attacked him with a knife during a fight. He then transported her body to a storage unit.
Police began investigating Winter Plummer’s disappearance after they received a tip that Plummer had asked a friend how to dispose of a body. When officers began questioning Plummer about his wife’s disappearance, he moved the body from the storage unit to the couple’s home.
On Friday, Plummer told investigators he had strangled his wife and was hiding the body in the couple’s home. Police found Winter Plummer’s body in a military-issued cargo crate in the couple’s garage.
