The Thurston County Coroner’s Office has determined that the Sept. 27 death of a woman at Lacey’s Hicks Lake was a suicide.
The body of the 24-year-old woman was found that morning by a man preparing to launch his boat. She was recovered from the public boat launch at 2800 Hicks Lake Road SE.
Coroner Gary Warnock said an analysis of the scene helped determine the cause of death.
