The King County Sheriff’s Office is still working on a case from summer 2015, when apparent 20-year old remains were found on Mount Si. Today, KCSO released a sketch of what the deceased man may have looked like – and are once again asking for the public’s help.
Detectives with the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit would like the public’s help to identify skeletal remains found on Mount Si in June 2015. Evidence found with the remains suggests they may be from the mid 1990’s. The sketch (right) reflects what experts believe the victim looked like before his death.
On June 15, 2015, two off-trail hikers came across what they believed to be human, skeletal remains near the Mount Si haystack. After they called 911, deputies responded to the scene, collected and airlifted out the remains- taking them to the King County Medical Examiner’s office.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office was able to determine that the remains were in fact human. After a forensic examination, it is believed that they are from a Caucasian male, 30-60 years old, and was likely 5’7-6’0 tall. KCSO says no cause of death has been determined at this point.
A pair of tortoise-shell glasses, a Swiss Army watch, and an Ortovox shovel were found with the remains (3 items pictured below). In addition to those items, a green Jansport backpack, and a pair of white Nike high-top tennis shoes size 12, were also located. A black leather wallet was also found with the remains but contained no identification.
