There is not points to locate on the map

Tukwila police are investigating the death of a 31-year-old man who was found in his backyard last night.

A relative of the man, who lives in the  11600 block of 44th Avenue South, dialed 911 to report that he had collapsed in the yard, said police spokesman Mike Murphy. Medics were unable to revive him.

While it’s unclear what caused the man’s death, police are investigating because “it’s unusual for a 31-year-old to just die,” Murphy said.

“He didn’t have any apparent trauma that stood out to us. He may just have had a medical ccondition,” Murphy added.
