  • Michael "Chad" Boysen, 26, is wanted for a double slaying.

Law enforcement throughout the Northwest is hunting for a man accused of killing his Seattle-area grandparents, who had just picked him up after his release from a Washington state prison.

Michael Boysen, 26, is considered extremely dangerous and has tried to obtain guns, according to police. Boysen was released from prison March 8 after serving several years for robbery. His grandparents picked him up from prison and hosted a party in Boysen's honor that same night, according to the King County Sheriff's Department. Police believe the grandparents were killed either March 8 or March 9 at their Renton home. Authorities believe Boysen also stole the grandparents' car.

"I can't stress how dangerous this guy is," said King County Sheriff John Urquhart. "We have to catch him as soon as we can."

Police also said Boysen reprotedly did not have a gun when he left the crime scene but that "he is trying to find weapons." Police have been searching the Internet for gun shows across the Northwest, according to the King County Sheriff's Department.

Boysen is 5-foot-10, weighs 170 pounds and has hazel eyes. He may be driving a 2001 Chrysler 300 with a Washington license plate.
