EVERETT — The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office identified today the Seattle woman who was found dead inside a sleeping bag off a road on Sunday.

Angela Denise Beery, 36, was found inside the sleeping bag partially wrapped in duct tape, lying about 15 feet off the road in the 2000 block of 100th Street SW., not far from Paine Field.

The Medical Examiner’s Office said Beery’s throat had been cut.

The woman had no local criminal history, Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said. He disclosed no other details about the homicide victim on Monday.

“It’s still too early in the investigation,” he said.

Police had no leads and no suspects in the case. They encouraged anyone with information to call the Everett police tip line at 425-257-8450.

It’s the second time a dead person turned up in a sleeping bag in Snohomish County recently. In November 2007, a man’s body was found along I-5 in Mountlake Terrace. The man died of drug overdose and his body was dumped along the freeway by two men at the center of a federal drug and gun investigation.
