36th Victim Of Oso Mudslide ID’d; 8 Still Missing
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office has now identified all 36 victims it has received from the Oso mudslide.
The office added the name Friday of 14-year-old Denver M. Harris of Arlington who was killed by blunt force injuries.
Three weeks after the March 22 slide, eight people remain missing and a search continues in the debris.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee planned to visit the site Friday afternoon, spending time with school children and first responders in Arlington and Darrington.
A computer simulation by the U. S. Geological Survey shows the landslide moved with surprising speed across the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River and buried the residential area as it spread out in the valley.
