KING 5 News now knows the exact content of one of two notes left at the scene of the police car bombings on October 22. Law enforcement sources tell us they believe Monfort wrote the notes, assuming police officers would die when the cars exploded. The author says he's blowing up the cars and killing police as a "tribute" to a sheriff's deputy trainee - Travis Bruner - who witnessed the beating of a girl in a holding cell by another King County deputy.

The note says: "These deaths are dedicated to Deputy Travis Bruner. You swear on a solemn oath to protect us from all harm, that includes you. Start policing each other or get ready to attend a lot of police funerals."

Bruner was suspended for five days. The other deputy has been fired and is awaiting trial on assault.
