Ford said that Washington State Patrol was flagged down in the area of 212th Avenue Southeast and Highway 164 by a white Dodge Ram truck.
The sheriff’s office is the lead on the investigation. Deputies are interviewing the man who was also in the truck but did not name that man as a suspect.
“There is an adult male being questioned or interviewed at this time, I don’t know what the relationship of that individual is to the truck or to the location here but they are talking to the individual,” Ford said.
Officials said they’re waiting for the medical examiner to determine an official cause and manner of death.
Officials added there is no ongoing threat to the public and are asking people to avoid the area while they process the scene.
