PUYALLUP — Police in Puyallup, Washington, say their preliminary investigation indicates that a man found dead in a parking lot at the Washington State Fair grounds died of a self-inflicted stab wound to the chest.
Capt. Scott Engle says police had access to surveillance camera images of the area and don’t believe the death was accidental. They also don’t believe anyone else was involved.
A large knife was found Sunday under the 27-year-old Puyallup man’s body.
Police Chief Bryan Jeter said police had interacted with the man several times on Sunday after reports that he had been intoxicated and disorderly at local businesses.
