PORT ANGELES, Wash. — A man who killed two sex offenders on the Olympic Peninsula this past June has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
During the sentencing of 34-year-old Patrick Dunn, Judge Ken Williams warned others against vigilantism.
Authorities say Drum killed 28-year-old Gary L. Blanton Jr., and 56-year-old Jerry W. Ray as part of a vendetta against sex offenders Blanton was living at Drum’s residence in Sequim when he was killed.
KOMO-TV reports the judge told Drum’s supporters to back off from attacks on the victims’ families. The wife of one of the victims says people who support Drum and consider him a “hero” have stalked their house, thrown things at their car, spat on them and more.
