Doug Williams, of the King County DNR, points out items lining shelves in a multi-level bunker dug into the side of a remote ridge where murder suspect Peter Keller died days earlier, Monday, April 30, 2012, near North Bend, Wash. Keller spent eight years carving his hole in the side of the mountain, camouflaging the rugged underground bunker with ferns and sticks and stocking it with a generator and ammunition boxes sealed in Ziploc bags. Suspected in the deaths of his wife, daughter and pets last weekend, he headed there prepared for the long haul with high-powered rifles, scope and body armor. Police pumped in tear gas, called for him over bullhorns, and, after 22 hours, set off explosives along the top of the bunker Saturday. He was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot.
