LAKE STEVENS, Wash. – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has suspended search operations in the area where human remains were found earlier this month.  Additional evidence has been collected from the area by detectives and the death is still under investigation. 

The gender of the decedent, as well as identification, cause and manner of death, will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Detectives and search and rescue volunteers searched more than two acres in the 12000 block of 7th Pl SE of Lake Stevens and another 30 acres adjacent to that property last Wednesday through Saturday.  Hundreds of volunteers from Snohomish, King, Skagit, Kitsap, and Thurston Counties helped with search operations.  Homeowners and residents in the area have been cooperative during the operations and investigation.
