The death of a man found in a ditch near the Purdy area of Gig Harbor Thursday night appears to be a homicide, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

The identity and age of the man found a little after 10 p.m. on the 14900 block of 82nd Avenue Northwest is still unknown but detectives saw “obvious signs of trauma due to homicide,” according to department spokesman Ed Troyer’s Twitter account.

The body was found by a couple walking their dog near wetlands, Troyer said.
