PORT TOWNSEND — The decomposed body of a man found in woods near Quilcene shows signs of homicidal violence, authorities said.
Additional details were not being released pending completion of the investigation, Jefferson County Undersheriff Ken Sukert said Wednesday.
The body was found last week. The victim has been identified, but his name was being withheld until family members are notified, Sukert said.
"The victim was well known to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, as he has been incarcerated in the Jefferson County jail 23 times from 1991 to 1999," for assault and other charges, Sukert said.
Jefferson County Prosecutor Juelie Dalzell declined comment Tuesday, noting the case was still under invesigation.
