The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office has received a substantial amount of leads regarding the investigation into the Careaga family murders.
The continued cooperation from members of the public has been overwhelmingly positive as it has helped broaden the investigation. Earlier this year, sheriff’s detectives identified Danie Jay Kelly Jr., age 39, as one person of interest in this investigation. Mr. Kelly is the individual in the previously released still photo from the Silverdale Target store where he is seen wearing Bandidos Motorcycle Club attire. However, Mr. Kelly is not the only person of interest to law enforcement at this time. Recently, detectives received valuable information from the community regarding additional persons of interest who are known associates of Mr. Kelly. This information may contain a critical piece to this investigation.
The sheriff’s office is requesting that the author(s) of recently submitted letters, or other members of the public who have information to provide, to please contact Kitsap County Sheriff’s detectives via: • Task Force hotline: 360-337-5613 • Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or the P3 tip app on your phone. We are looking to engage in further discussions. You may continue to remain anonymous, if desired.
