A man’s body was found on the former Olympia brewery property in Tumwater Sunday morning, a spokeswoman for the city said.

The man is thought to have electrocuted himself because his body was found near an area marked “high voltage,” said Tumwater spokeswoman Ann Cook.

That location is on Boston Street Southwest, near Custer Way, on the property of the more modern brewery buildings that sit above Tumwater Falls.

The body was found about 11:20 a.m. Sunday, although the man was thought to have died three days before, Cook said.

Power was turned off to the area so that emergency responders could retrieve the body, she said.
