Police chase may have ended in man's death near Lynnwood

There is not points to locate on the map

Snohomish County sheriff’s investigators believe a body pulled Wednesday from a Lynnwood-area lake is that of a man who escaped from authorities three days earlier following a car chase.

The police pursuit began just before midnight on Sunday as sheriff’s deputies and the State Patrol tried to pull over a silver Honda Accord being driven recklessly. The chase started in South Everett and eventually ended in the 1200 block of North Lake Stickney Drive, near Lake Stickney. The driver of the Accord bailed from the car and ran off.

Deputies searched for the man using a police dog, but didn’t find him.

The body pulled from Lake Stickney on Wednesday matches the description of the man who fled from authorities, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The man is from the Spokane area and was wanted on an outstanding warrant for escape issued by the state Department of Corrections.

Identification and cause of death will be made by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
