Body found in Fall City

FALL CITY — A 67-year-old Fall City man was found dead

in the alley behind the Model Garage on Monday, Jan. 3.

Police are handling the case as an unexplained death, said

King County sheriff spokesman John Urquhart, at least until an

autopsy can be done on the body. However, police said there weren't

any obvious signs of foul play. They declined to release the name of

the man.

Employees from the Model Garage returned to work on

Monday to face the "freaky" and grim scene in their own backyard.

"It was pretty shocking," said owner Dennis Musga. "You

have to hold some type of composure, but it was pretty freaky."

Musga said that a nearby resident found the body at 4 a.m.

on Monday morning and called police. There was a lot of blood

on the victim's face, but Musga said it was difficult to

determine whether the injuries were serious. Police declined to offer any

details on the condition of the body.

The police taped off the alley behind the shop at 33805

S.E. Redmond-Fall City Road for about eight hours, but the

investigation didn't hamper Model Garage's or surrounding

businesses' operations.

Results from the King County Medical Examiner's Office

were released after the Valley Record went to press.
