King County Sheriff's Office investigating suspicious death in Covington

The body of a male was found in the road near the 19400 block of SE 267th in Covington at approximately 5:30 a.m Saturday.

The victim, a 16-year-old originally from Montana who was staying with his uncle, according to King County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sergeant Cindi West, had been in contact with Sheriff's deputies earlier in the evening.

West said that late Friday or early Saturday the sheriff's office made contact with the victim who was reported to be intoxicated and belligerent. At that point deputies turned him over to his uncle.

One person, also a male, is in custody for an altercation that he had with the victim sometime during the early morning hours, West said.
