Body found in Lake Stickney was that of fugitive

Associated Press

LYNNWOOD– The Snohomish County sheriff’s office says the man found dead in a small lake near Lynnwood was a fugitive from the Spokane-area.

Deputies and Washington State Patrol troopers had chased the man on Feb. 26 for reckless driving. He left the car, fled on foot near Lake Stickney and got away.

The body was found floating near a dock last Wednesday in the lake. Sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Prentiss said Monday the man apparently drowned or died of hypothermia, although the medical examiner’s office said the cause and manner of death are pending.

He’s identified as 28-year-old Seth B. Brandley, who was wanted for escape from state Department of Corrections supervision.

The Spokesman-Review reports the Spokane man had an extensive criminal history.
