Police have surrounded a hotel on the Oregon coast where a man accused of killing his grandparents is holed up.
Michael Boysen, 26, of Washington state is suspected of killing Robert and Norma Taylor, both in their 80s, after he got out of prison for burglary. Officials believe he killed the Taylors at their home and fled with their car.
The WestShore Oceanfront Suites overlooks the Pacific Ocean in sleepy Lincoln City, Ore. A property manager at the hotel saw Boysen's face on a TV broadcast about the killings and realized the man was staying at the hotel -- and under his own name.
"It wasn't an alias," the motel's owner, Kent Landers of Vancouver, told the Oregonian. "How stupid is that?"
King County, Wash., officials said Boysen had been searching the Internet for gun shows in the Northwest, where he could possibly buy a gun without a criminal background check. Boysen has had multiple felony convictions for robbery and burglary. Authorities have said Boysen did not have a gun. They have not said how the Taylors were slain.
