Body found in Steel Lake
Body found in Steel Lake:
A 39-year-old Federal Way man was found dead in Steel Lake at Steel Lake Park, 2410 S. 312th St., at approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The mans clothes and wallet were discovered on the parks dock by a passerby who was walking his dog, according to Federal Way police spokeswoman Stacy Flores. The dogs owner called the belongings to the attention of American Medical Response paramedics who were already at the park. The paramedics then spotted a mans body floating in the lake, Flores said.
The body was recovered and pronounced dead on the scene by the paramedics, she said. Federal Way police were called.
The King County Medical Examiner took custody of the body around 11 a.m., Flores said. By that time what appeared to be a suicide note was found in the mans residence, she said. The man had a warrant that was issued in Federal Way for his arrest, Flores said.
Police are currently investigating the crime, including the note to ensure its authenticity, she said. The medical examiner is expected to release the cause of death and notify the mans next-of-kin. His name had not been released as of press time.
Performing arts center:
Johnson Consulting, hired by the city to perform a performing arts center feasibility study, will present its initial findings to Federal Way and residents at 7 p.m. Dec. 5 at City Hall, 33325 8th Ave. S.
The consultants are expected to reveal that a performing arts center, as a stand-alone venue, may not be feasible, but a combination conference center with a smaller performance venue may be, city spokeswoman Linda Farmer said. The meeting is open to public comment.
