Part 4: Suspicions vs Suspects, Then and Now: The Life and Death of Nicole Cearo

Our interview with SPD Continues.Nicole Cearo Part 4

Roosevelt Montgomery Jr. has what law enforcement would describe as a lengthy criminal record and over the years numerous encounters with police, including possession of a stolen vehicle, theft, domestic violence and child abuse. He is at times described in police documents as armed and dangerous. He was 25 when Nicole disappeared, and is now 33, still living in Seattle. To date, he has not been charged with her murder.

When police went public with Nicole’s case in 2010, they were short on details, but one was unmistakable: they pointed in the direction of Mr. Montgomery.

Even if police believe someone committed a crime, theory isn’t evidence or proof. They could, in fact, be completely wrong. Is he a suspect?*




*Under the Redline contacted Roosevelt Montgomery Jr numerous times online via text and phone for a number of weeks. So far he has declined to comment.
