Detectives with the Olympia Police Department have opened a homicide investigation into the death of a man who was found near the Olympia Auto Mall late Thursday afternoon, Jan. 26.
Olympia Police Lt. Paul Lower said the man, who is thought to be in his mid-30s, was shot in the head. Coroner Gary Warnock said Friday the man's identity has not yet been confirmed.
Police were called to the scene at around 5 p.m. after a passerby reported seeing a man's body in a cul-de-sac in the 2000 block of Caton Way Southwest. He was confirmed dead when police arrived.
The area was closed off by police Thursday evening.
Lower said detectives are following multiple leads. If anyone has information, Lower said to call 360-753-8300.
