Fishermen find man's body in Stillaguamish River

ARLINGTON, Wash. – The body of an unidentified man was recovered Thursday morning from the Stillaguamish River.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said two fishermen called 911 about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday to report that they spotted a body in the water near 59th Ave NE and Dike Ave.

Detectives from the Major Crimes Unit will conduct a death investigation to determine if the death is suspicious.

Identification of the deceased, as well as cause and manner of death, will be confirmed by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.
