The Yakima County Coroner is hoping to find help in identifying a body found in 1988 near the Parker Dam in Parker, Washington.
Coroner Jim Curtice says he’s hoping to find a “presumptive family member for DNA testing to finally identify the person.”
As a lifelong Washingtonian, I have become familiar with many Washington State-related facts over the years. Other than the slim chance of being a contestant on a game show someday where those facts might come in handy, my insider knowledge doesn't do much good.
One exception might be helping those who are not familiar with Washington State separate facts from fiction. Heaven knows there are plenty of misconceptions about the Evergreen State, even some downright myths that really need to be busted.
We Washingtonians do a lot of things. With a population that's as diverse as our climate and topography, there is simply no shortage of things to do, that we do. We ski, swim, fish, hunt, recreate, drink beer, drink coffee - oh how we drink coffee - climb mountains, stroll through the desert, grow hops, learn, pray, protest, listen, work, eat - oh how we eat.
