Jeremy Peck case: Sunday event still on, now a ‘remembrance’

In light of the tragic turn in the search for 24-year-old Jeremy Peck, the title of tomorrow’s event in the Admiral District has changed, but it’s still on, and the public is still invited. It’s now a remembrance, 4:30-6 pm outside Royal Blue Tattoo at 4215 SW College (the sharable Facebook event page is here). Family spokesperson Cheryl Perry has also provided an update on the “Find Jeremy Peck” page, including:

… I spoke to the Medical Examiner yesterday after the autopsy was performed; they said ‘the cause of death is pending further investigation for more testing to determine exact cause of death before we can enter cause of death on the death certificate.” They also said that this investigation would be turned over to Seattle Police Department in 8 to 10 weeks and are considering it a ‘suspicious circumstances case.’

I know we all want to know what happened to Jeremy, but we have to be patient and let the Medical Examiners do their job, the more time they have and the more complete the report is, the better chance we have that justice will be served for Jeremy.

The remembrance location is steps away from where Jeremy was last reported seen, early the morning of December 24th. While Seattle Police were reported to have joined Bainbridge Police at the beach where the body was found, SPD spokesperson Det. Mark Jamieson told WSB on Thursday that how they proceed from here depends on the cause of death.

    Can I request that for all those who see one of the missing signs posted take them down. it will be very difficult for those who loved this man to see his face like that.
    I didn’t know him and it’s sad for me to be reminded of his loss this way.

    Very gracious & sensitive thought.

    I think they should stay up so we dont forget,and to put pressure on the person in charge of doing this to Jeremy.Leave them up.

    I have to say I agree with “neighbor”, while yes, I do want to see justice served for Jeremy, this is no longer a missing persons case.

  • Liza January 22, 2011 (7:08 pm)

    I wondered the same thing today. Does anyone know what his family would prefer?

  • Alki Resident January 22, 2011 (7:23 pm)

    We’ll know tomorrow at the memorial.

    I noticed the Missing poster in my ‘hood was taken down a couple days before the body was found. That struck me as odd…

  • Jennifer January 22, 2011 (7:41 pm)

    A “missing person” poster is for a MISSING PERSON. It’s not OK to misuse them for anything else. Not everyone keeps up with these cases and may see the poster thinking the person hasn’t been found yet, say they think they see someone similar to the poster … so then the police will continue to get unnecessary calls.

    There are much better ways to remember someone.

    Knew Jeremy growing up. Had gym class with him at west Seattle. He will be missed. RIP

    I agree with Jennifer, may he rest in peace…

  • Fred Collins January 23, 2011 (12:18 pm)

    My heart goes out to you and Steve & all of the Peck family at this difficult time. Hope to see you all soon, May your nephew RIP.

    I keep seeing reference to “justice being served” etc. But has any determination of what actually happened been published yet?

    • WSB January 24, 2011 (11:21 am)

      There is no determination yet. The Medical Examiner has to determine a cause of death; as was noted in our story a day earlier (which we need to link to this one), the family and friends have been told that could take at least two months. – TR
