Decomposed body found in wooded area off Martin Way in Lacey

Staff writerOctober 16, 2013 

Lacey police are investigating a dead body found Wednesday afternoon inside a tent in a wooded area off the 5800 block of Martin Way, across from and past the Regal Cinemas.

A person walking on a trail in the area found the body about 1:30 p.m., Lacey Police Cmdr. Jim Mack said. The body inside the tent is badly decomposed, and investigators are not sure whether it is a man or a woman, Mack said.

It is too early to say whether the deceased is a victim of foul play, Mack added. The Thurston County Coroner and Lacey detectives were on scene Wednesday afternoon investigating.
