Police blow Wash. mountain bunker, find man dead

A sign warning of murder suspect Peter Alex Keller is seen at a trailhead several miles from where a gun-toting survivalist is suspected of killing his wife and daughter several days earlier Friday, April 27, 2012, in North Bend, Wash. Keller may be holed up in a self-made fort not far from where Seattle's outer suburbs give way to the vast recreational playground of Cascade Mountains. Police expect more people to hit the nearby trails this weekend, and deputies are warning them to steer clear of Keller if they think they see him. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)

Peter Keller spent eight years carving his hole in the side of the mountain, camouflaging the rugged underground bunker with ferns and sticks and stocking it with a generator and ammunition boxes sealed in Ziploc bags. Suspected in the deaths of his wife, daughter and pets last weekend, he headed there prepared for the long haul with high-powered rifles, scope and body armor.
