The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help locating a missing Ford Mustang after a 45-year-old man was found dead Saturday afternoon off Old Highway 99 south of Tumwater.

The 2007 Ford Mustang is the victim’s vehicle, and it was taken from the scene, deputies say. Its Washington license plate number is BJV3429.

About 12:30 p.m. Saturday, the man was found dead in the 9000 block of Old Highway 99. Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the incident as a homicide.

A woman who identified herself as the man’s girlfriend to KIRO 7 said that she found the body.

“He was just cold and stiff,” the woman told KIRO 7. “The house had been ransacked; it looked like someone robbed him.”
