No other remains have been found in the area.
CLALLAM COUNTY, Wash. — Human remains were found Friday at Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department (CCSD) confirmed Saturday.
Around noon on Friday, MPs were called to the area after beachgoers reported finding what they believed was a female torso.
Lawmakers along with U.S. fish and wildlife officials closed the area of the beach where the remains were found, about 100 yards southwest of where the trail meets the beach, according to the CCSD.
The remains were transported to a local funeral home after being inspected by a coroner from the Clallam County Attorney’s Office. Foul play is not suspected by CCSD at this time.
A search, which involved using a drone over the water and spanned Friday and Saturday, uncovered no other remains.
CCSD is in contact with NTSB and Island County authorities as these human remains may be linked to the seaplane crash off Whidbey Island earlier this month.
