Coroner identifies body found near Martin Way in Olympia

The body of a man that was found Wednesday near Martin Way in Olympia has been identified as Noah A.M. Berry, 19, of Olympia, according to the Thurston County Coroner.

The autopsy of Berry’s body showed “no evidence of external injuries that caused his death,” Coroner Gary Warnock said Monday. Warnock said last week it was unlikely the man was hit by a car.

Results from a toxicology report are expected in eight to 10 weeks, he said.

A passing garbage truck driver called 911 after spotting the body Wednesday morning in a marshy area near Martin Way East and Mary Elder Road Northeast, across from the former Bailey’s Motor Inn, Warnock said.
