Suspect arrested in encampment death between Myers Way and Highway 509

New information today on a case we reported yesterday on partner site West Seattle Blog after learning of this big police response on SB Highway 509 (shown in our video above).

Police now believe the death of a 25-year-old man in an unauthorized encampment on the slope between 509 and Myers Way was a homicide. This morning, they reported a 43-year-old man has been arrested and jailed. The cause of the victim’s death has not yet been announced but police say they learned “an assault” had taken place. The suspect has a fairly lengthy criminal record, according to state records online; the felony cases are mostly drug-related.
