SEATTLE — Police say a woman’s body was found by outreach workers conducting the annual homeless count in the Seattle.
The body was found about 3:45 a.m. Friday along a south Seattle street near Interstate 90. There was no obvious injury, and it was turned over to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
KOMO reports the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness found more than 2,700 people sleeping in cars, tents, buses and emergency rooms or in doorways and under bridges.
That’s a 5 percent increase over last year’s One Night Count.
About 800 volunteers spread out from 10 locations in the county to count every person they saw outside.
