Washougal gunman Stanbary was accused of raping girl 9
Schizophrenia possible factor in Stanbary’s spiralMany questions, few answers in murder-suicideSteven D. Stanbary allegedly molested and raped a girl who lived in his home over several years, starting when she was 9, according to police reports reviewed Wednesday.The alleged abuse wasn’t uncovered until December 2010, when the girl, now a teenager, disclosed it to several people and later, a Washougal police detective. Her name and relationship to Stanbary were redacted in the report.Senior Deputy Prosecutor Dustin Richardson, who heads the Children’s Justice Center, received police reports in January. Having concerns over certain aspects of the case, he didn’t believe he had strong enough evidence to charge Stanbary until late November. Finally, he gave Washougal police the OK to allow Stanbary to turn himself in through his attorney on Dec. 8 on suspicion of first-degree rape of a child and first-degree child molestation.“He obviously had different plans,” Richardson said Wednesday.The day before, officials say, Stanbary set his Washougal house on fire, killed his wife, Leona Stanbary, and her twin sister, Mona Daugherty, and fired from numerous guns, keeping firefighters away, before killing himself.
