Correction: In the print version of this article, the Courier-Herald failed to report that Daniel Garl was allegedly killed by Austin Cain. Though Cain has been charged with killing Garl, he has yet to be convicted. Additionally, the original article misreported Garl came back to the Plateau to take care of his mother. He comes home to take care of his grandmother. This article has been updated.
A Plateau local was killed earlier this month in Seattle by the waterfront.
Daniel M. Garl, 38, was allegedly stabbed multiple times on Aug. 5 by Austin Cain in the 900 block of Alaskan Way, near Fire Station 5, at 11:30 a.m.
The Seattle Times reported first responders took Garl to the Harborview Medical Center, where he died.
According to his sister Hope Kozolowski, who lives in upstate New York, Garl was a long-time Enumclaw and Buckley resident for most of his life, and though he chose to live on the streets of Seattle, would bus up to the Plateau to take care of their grandmother.
According to officials, Garl and Cain were in an argument before Garl was killed.
Kozolowski said Cain was the ex of the woman Garl was dating at the time, and had been released from jail on July 21. Despite having a protection order against the woman, Kozolowski said she was told by a Seattle Police detective that King violated the order several times.
The Times confirmed Cain had a warrant out for his arrest from the Department of Corrections, likely for violating that protection order.
Cain was arrested Aug. 15 in Kitsap County.
