EVERETT — A man’s body was found Tuesday morning in a ditch south of Everett.

A passerby spotted the body about 7 a.m. near the intersection of Highway 99 and Russell Way. A bicycle believed to be the man’s was found nearby.

The man is believed to be 52, from Bothell.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will confirm the man’s identification and determine how he died.
