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.
