By Lt. Chris Lawler, PIO, Lakewood Police Department
The Lakewood Police Department was notified today (Thursday) about the discovery of human remains in King County. The Lakewood Police Department Major Crimes unit responded to the scene to work with the detectives and provide information. We have not been notified that any of the remains have been positively identified and understand that the identification could take some time. Until the remains have been identified, our case concerning the three missing men from Lakewood remains open.
We will continue to assist the King County Sheriff’s Department with their death investigation and would refer any inquires/or questions to their Public Information Officer.
We have no comment on the case, except to say that we are waiting for more information and identification of the remains through the Medical Examiners Office.
Please contact Lt. Chris Lawler (253.830.5011) for additional information.
