UPDATE: Death investigation at Camp Long

3:33 PM: We’ve received multiple questions about police, fire, and the Medical Examiner’s Office at Camp Long this afternoon. We talked with police at the park; they tell us a person was found dead, and it’s believed to be the missing West Seattle man mentioned here last night. Since his car was found at Camp Long, searchers went in with K-9 assistance today, and that’s how the body was found. The cause of death will be determined by the ME, but police say so far they do not suspect foul play.

4:15 PM: Further SPD confirmation is here.

    I can’t believe he’s gone. Brian was the most grounded person I’ve ever known. Years could pass and he would show up, the same awesome guy he’s always been. I hadn’t seen him in a few years and I was so looking forward to that next chance to catch up over beers. My family will miss him terribly. RIP “Tiger.”
