OLYMPIA — The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office says the human remains first discovered by a dog on the Nisqually Indian Reservation come from the body of a woman who was dismembered.
The determination was made Thursday by a forensic anthropologist.
Sgt. Ray Brady told The Olympian detectives are investigating the death as a homicide.
Coroner Gary Warnock is trying to identify the woman. He says teeth might be used for identification if they can be matched to dental records for a missing person.
