Seattle authorities say the death of radio talk host Mike Webb was a homicide, although they have not yet arrested a suspect. Webb's body was found Thursday by a man cleaning out his house for the landlord. The body had apparently been missed in previous searches because it was wrapped in a tarp and stuffed into a crawl space, with book cases in front of it. Police say he had been stabbed repeatedly. Webb had been missing since April 13th.
Webb was best known for his 10 years on KIRO-AM, where his liberal, gay activist views were in sharp contrast to the conservative fare of most radio talk. He had been airing an online talk show via GAYBC.com since being fired from KIRO in December 2005 when he was charged with insurance fraud and ultimately convicted.
