WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Recognize this (likely stolen) dumped backpack?

Keri found this backpack in her compost bin this afternoon, on 39th SW between Dakota and Genesee: “Couldn’t find a wallet, or much to identify it. But there are some things that the owner can tell us to identify it. I’m guessing it was stolen, the thief took what they saw as valuable and then stashed it in our bin.” She took it to the Southwest Precinct this evening, so if you think it’s yours, contact police, but if you’d want to check with her first, you can e-mail us and we’ll forward your contact info.

    Any chance it belongs to Derek Lopez?

      Though the Crimestoppers flyer in his case does not describe the backpack

      the Times quoted his family as saying the backpack was blue. This one is black. I have asked Keri and she says it seems in too good of a condition to have been involved in a violent crime, among other things that make it sound unlikely, but it’s in police’s hands now so certainly they would be able to determine if it relates to anything … TR
