Investigators Need Help Identifying Murdered Man with Oklahoma Ties

Posted: Updated:

The OSBI is requesting help identifying a murder victim in a cold case. His body was found in Tumwater, Washington in 1998.

Medical investigators determined he he died from blunt force trauma and showed signs of use of an accelerant to prevent identification.

Washington investigators believe he was from Oklahoma and have reached out to OSBI for help identifying him.

Investigators say the victim told multiple people that he had Oklahoma ties.

An OSBI forensic artist created a rendering of what officials believe the man may have looked like.

Police say he was probably 5'8" to 5'10" tall, weighed about 165 pounds with light brown or read hair. He is thought to be in his late teens or early 20s.

At the time of his death, he was wearing Dickie painter pants, new camel-colored work boots and two dark blue sweatshirts over a white "Sherwin Williams" t-shirt.

He had no tattoos, scars or marks on his body and appeared to be have had dental work, good dental hygiene and grooming.

Anyone who recognizes this man and hasn't seen him since March 1998 is asked to contact Detective Ron Knapp with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office at (360) 786-5278 or the OSBI hotline at 1 (800) 522-8017.
