The U.S. Marshals Service-led Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of a man charged with the February 2022 murder of an elderly couple in Okanogan County. The suspect, Dylan Harrington, is wanted on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of unauthorized removal or concealment of a body with national extradition.

The victims, Dave and Gerlyn Covey, both in their 80s, were found deceased at their property near Chesaw on February 16, 2022. Their bodies had been burned and concealed under a sheet of plywood. The search for the Coveys began after their truck was found abandoned three days earlier. Detectives identified Harrington as a person of interest after they found the bodies, and believe he had been squatting nearby and stealing supplies from the couple.

U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Washington Craig Ellis Thayer says “Dylan Harrington is accused of a most heinous crime which demonstrates a clear disregard for human life." He says their efforts will continue with partners at the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to bring Harrington to justice.

Harrington is described as a white male, standing 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing approximately 145 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes and should be considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information about his whereabouts, contact the U.S. Marshals Service tip line at (866) 865-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online via the USMS Tips App.
