OKLAHOMA – Washington State investigators are looking to Oklahomans for help identifying a murder victim.
Investigators believe a murder victim from 1998 could be from Oklahoma.
According to authorities, a young man was murdered and his body was discovered in Tumwater, Washington.
Medical examiners in the state determined he died of blunt trauma and an accelerant was used to prevent identification.
The victim reportedly told several individuals he was tied to the state of Oklahoma.
The victim is believed to be in his late teens or early 20s, between 5’8″ – 5’10”, weighed approximately 165 lbs. with short light brown or red hair.
He was wearing two dark blue sweatshirts over a white “Sherwin Williams” t-shirt; white Dickie painter style pants; and new, camel-colored work boots.
If someone believes this man looks familiar who they have not seen prior to March 1998, please contact Detective Ron Knapp with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office at 360-786-5278.
