Hikers walking on a Vashon Island beach shortly after noon Monday discovered the body of an elderly woman, the King County Sheriffs Office reported.
It looks like she washed ashore, Sgt. Cindi West said Monday. Obviously, its suspicious anytime someone winds up dead on a beach, but we dont know how she got there.
The body was found on Reddings Beach, on the islands west side and just north of Paradise Cove. While detectives try to determine the womans identity, West said the King County Medical Examiners Office is expected to perform an autopsy on Tuesday.
First well try to figure out who she is, West said, then backtrack to figure out how she got there.
