The remains that were tentatively identified as missing Olympia woman Gail Doyle over the weekend have been determined to be from an animal, not a human, according to The Thurston County Sheriff’s Department.
Doyle, 60, was reported missing by family members June 4, and was last seen June 2 with James E. Stidd at an Olympia bar.
Stidd, 66, appeared Friday afternoon in Thurston County Superior Court, and Judge Erik Price set bail at $2 million. Price also found probable cause for four felony charges: second-degree murder and four counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.
Detectives continue to search a refuse site and “all resources will be exhausted in an attempt to locate Doyle,” Thurston County Sgt. Carla Carter said in a news release Monday afternoon.
