Overview of 1987 King County John Doe

The victim was found floating in the Lake Washington Ship Canal quarter-mile west of the Aurora Bridge. He shopped or dined in Fremont shortly before his death. The owner of M&S Deli on North 36th Street remembered seeing the man come into the store alone two or three times, he thought the man lived in the area because he never saw him driving a car. There was no wallet, identification or watch. He could have been robbed, or it could have been a gangland hit. Because his clothes were not ripped it is believed he did not jump from the bridge. Police think the man was murdered, although accidental drowning is listed as the cause of death because there were no wounds or evidence to prove otherwise.
