Suspected Murderer Analiesa Golde Found Dead in Apparent Suicide Near Long BeachSource: Facebook/Portland Police Bureau

The month-long manhunt for a woman accused of murder came to a grim conclusion when the suspect, Analiesa Golde, was found dead on Tuesday near Long Beach, Washington. Authorities announced that Golde appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, a chapter closed in blood, though not the one law enforcement had hoped to write. Her vehicle was also located and recovered as part of the investigation.

Previously, Golde was urgently sought by the Portland Police Bureau with suspicions anchoring her in the homicide of her husband. Investigators expanded their search to Southwest Washington, theorizing that she might have been hiding out in the Toutle or Mount St. Helens vicinity. The department had even reached out to the public, urging anyone in the area to be vigilant and report any sightings of Golde or her Toyota 4Runner, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

This isolated and tragic resolution came after a statement issued by the Portland Police Bureau thanking the community for its assistance throughout the tense pursuit. "The Portland Police Bureau would like to thank the community for assistance with this case," the Bureau acknowledged, acknowledging the integral role locals played during the weeks-long search, as per the Portland Police Bureau.

Details surrounding the circumstances of Golde’s death are sparse, as law enforcement officials continue to piece together the final days and moments of her life.
