King County Sheriff’s Office deputies found the body of a 37-year-old woman in the water at Dockton Park today, Dec. 6, according to sheriff’s office spokesman Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
The woman reportedly lived aboard a boat in Quartermaster Harbor. Her husband returned to the boat after having been away and reported her missing about 10 a.m. He had spotted her backpack, Abbott said, but had been unable to find her. Deputies arrived and located the woman’s body near shore. The medical examiner arrived about 1:40 p.m. and will determine the cause of death.
Abbott said no foul play is suspected.
