Seattle Police add Jeremy Peck death to ‘unsolved homicides’ list

November 6, 2012 at 4:33 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

When Seattle Police overhauled their website and launched a list of unsolved murders, some wondered why it did not include the December 2010 death of Jeremy Peck, who disappeared after a visit to the Admiral Pub early Christmas Eve morning that year, eventually sparking a search that ended when his body washing up on Bainbridge Island in January 2011. We noted at the time that SPD had not classified his death as a murder; when an unsealed search warrant revealed new information in July 2011, police had reiterated that it was being investigated as a “suspicious death.” However, SPD has just added Peck’s death to their “Catch a Killer” page, making an indirect announcement with this tweet a short time ago:


The July 2011 revelations included word of two men having been seen dumping something off the “low bridge” and a car testing positive for blood believed to have been Peck’s. But no arrests have been reported, and police’s addition of the case to the unsolved-murders list indicates a new bid to ask the public for tips.

  1. Hopefully sometime soon I will see news that this case has been solved and give his family and friends at least a bit of closure.

  2. How is it that a car tests positive for blood and yet no arrests have been made, not to mention there has been a good lead on a local individual and again no arrest? How discouraging, especially now there are three unsolved murders in our area. This scares me.
