Police investigate death of woman outside of St. Francis Hospital

Federal Way police are investigating the death of a 27-year-old woman, who was left outside St. Francis Hospital early Wednesday morning.

Hospital staff discovered the woman lying on the ground bleeding near the hospital’s main entrance at about 4:05 a.m., police said in a media release.

At the time the woman, who lived outside of Federal Way city limits, was discovered, a witness reported hearing a nondescript vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed.

Attempts by hospital staff to revive the victim failed, and she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police are treating the case as a homicide until the King County Medical Examiner’s Office determines the official cause of death and are working to determine where the crime took place.

Anyone with information should contact the Federal Way Police Department at safecityfw.com or by calling 253-835-2121.
