Holly Washa, Cal Coburn Brown was executed by lethal injection for the rape, torture and murder of Holly washa, 22, of Burien. His was the first execution in the state of Washington since August 2001.
And for almost 20 years undeserved, the man who abducted, raped, tortured and killed her – off a promising young life – has been allowed to escape justice.
Now, however, it appears that justice will be exacted from Cal Coburn Brown, who confessed to the crimes after his arrest.
He was convicted in King County Superior Court of first degree aggravated murder, first-degree rape and first-degree robbery.
Washo, who was just 22 at the time of his violent death, it was brutal beyond belief, lived in Burien. She was working at TCI Cablevision and Hickory Farms in Southcenter Mall while pursuing his dream of becoming a flight attendant.
Understandably, this does not mean anything to Kim Bowen, who was both friend and supervisor washa TCI Cablevision.
King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg described the family as “very close. They really treat Holly, as if still they’re with them as a member of the family. They feel there is an empty hole in your family. They want to be in the implementation not because they want to see him die, but I want to be there for Holly. ”
In 1991, as washa was leaving the parking lot where she worked, Brown pointed to her tire, as if something was wrong. When he stopped and opened the door to look at them, Brown was abducted at knife point, stole the money, then took her back to her room in a local motel.
Over the next two days, repeatedly raped and tortured washa while bound and gagged in the motel room. When he left to fly to California, Brown washa handcuffed, forced into the trunk of his car, after parking at Sea-Tac International Airport, cut her throat and stabbed in the chest so as not to witness his crimes.
Ellen Griffin Dunne, the founder of Justice for Victims of Homicide, has written:
“The scales of justice have gradually become weighted in favor of the defendants, leaving the victim, without rights or representation. We have to re-establish the idea that murder is the crime against humanity in the end. His punishment should reflect the seriousness of the offense. “
