New details in Mount Vernon political sign murder emerge

Angela Conjin posted $250,000 bail on Thursday and is awaiting a decision from the Skagit County prosecutor’s.



[MOUNT VERNON] – (MTN) A Skagit County judge reduced bail for Angela Conjin, 55, to $250,000 in a hearing on Wednesday, as new details emerge about the events that left 32-years old Kamran Cohee dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Cohee’s boyfriend, Joshua Tyron said that he and Cohee were out for a day of sledding, and stopped to lower the air pressure in the tires of his truck before driving further on the snow-covered road, according to KING 5 of Seattle. He admits to seeing the Loren Culp sign in the yard and removing it.

John Conjin, the spouse of Angela emerged from the home and he and Tyron got into a physical fight. Both parties provided different stories of how the physical fight started and what happened during it, but both parties are consistent in the actions committed by Ms. Conjin. After the fight had ended and both Cohee and Tyron were at their truck, Conjin emerged from her home with a gun firing several shots, striking Cohee in the head, killing her. Both sides stated that Cohee wasn’t involved in the theft of the sign or the earlier fight between the two men.

John Conjin has been charged with fourth-degree assault for his actions on Saturday. Tyron has not been charged, but prosecutors have not ruled out potential charges for him. Prosecutors have charged Anglea Conjin with second-degree murder using a magistrate warrant, which provides prosecutors 30 days to process formal charges. During her bail hearing, Brett Purtzer, Conjin’s attorney, argued this was a self-defense case. Prosecutors countered that by reports from all parties the fight was over and Cohee wasn’t involved in the altercation when Angela shot the 32-year-old woman.

Ms. Conjin was able to post bail and is out of jail. As part of her bail conditions, she had to surrender all firearms and ammunition in her home.
