Homicide victim found at vacant Everett house

EVERETT — Police on Wednesday were canvassing the View Ridge-Madison neighborhood in Everett after a man was found dead there the night before.

A neighbor spotted the man on the ground outside a vacant house at 22 Madison St. He called 911 about 6:20 p.m.

The man had obvious signs of trauma to his torso, police said. He looked to be in his late 20s or early 30s.

The Everett Major Crimes Unit is investigating the death as a homicide, Lt. Robert Goetz said.

Detectives declined to say more about how they believe the man may have died. There are no identified suspects or motives.

Detectives received a search warrant around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday and collected evidence at the scene.

They returned Wednesday afternoon to look for clues in the daylight, Goetz said.

The victim’s identity had not been determined as of late Wednesday afternoon. The body was turned over to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Anyone with information is asked to call 425-257-8450.
