Body found in yard of bank-owned house in Everett

Everett Police are investigating a suspicious death after a resident called 911 and reported seeing a man’s body behind a garage about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police arrived at 22 West Madison in Everett to find a dead man who appears to be in his late 20s or early 30s. The man looks to have suffered trauma to his body, so authorities are treating his death as a homicide, said Everett Police Lt. Robert Goetz.

Everett Police have called in the major-crimes unit and are awaiting a search warrant to enter the property and conduct an investigation, Goetz said.

It doesn’t appear that anyone lives in the house, Goetz said, and police research indicates that the home is owned by a bank.

“We won’t really know what we have until we’ve had an opportunity to go in and investigate,” Goetz said.
