From staff writer Rolf Boone at The Olympian:

The body of an unidentified man was found dead and pulled out of the water at West Bay Marina about noon Sunday, according to the Olympia Fire Department.

According to Olympia Fire Chief J.D. Young:

About 11:30 a.m. Sunday, the Olympia Fire Department responded to a report of a possible drowning at West Bay Marina. Once there, they found the body of a man in the water between two boats under a covered area of the marina, Young said. The unidentified man was fully clothed and had facial hair, he said.

Olympia Fire worked with the Olympia Police Department to remove the body, Young said.

Olympia Police Detectives and Thurston County Coroner representatives later remained on the scene until about 5 p.m., Olympia Police Sgt. Jim Partin said. The unidentified man’s death is being treated as suspicious, although he also may have fallen off a boat or the dock into the water.

“We’re looking at all possibilities,” Partin said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Olympia Police detective Paul Evers at 360-753-8041.
