Human remains found in a burned-out van Monday morning on a rural road in East Pierce County are being investigated as a suspicious death.

Deputies were called about 7 a.m. to L S Gate, a rural road in the Mount Rainier foothills, Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

The remains have not been identified, but appear to be a man’s, Troyer added.

Officials think the van was set ablaze the night before.

The investigation is ongoing.

    East Pierce County…. burned out van… dead guy inside… now what sounds suspicious about that?

  2. Where in East Pierce County?

  3. East Pierce I think includes the area from Orting to about to the end of Buckley. I believe Enumclaw is in King County.
