Got a tip about this and just confirmed with police here at West Seattle Summer Fest, so we’re mentioning it here in case you saw the police activity: A well-known local transient was found dead by Eastridge Christian Assembly in The Triangle (southeast corner of 39th/Oregon) around 6 o’clock last night. Police say he was in his late 40s, well-known to them – but not much of a trouble-maker. He appeared to have fallen, which they say he had done many times over the years. Foul play is NOT suspected, though the cause of death and ID aren’t public, pending the Medical Examiner’s next media update (we’ll check on that this afternoon).
West Seattle, Washington
