Couple found in submerged car in Snohomish River identified
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified two people whose bodies were found yesterday inside a car submerged in the Snohomish River.
Jason J. Dolman, 31, and Riza P. Ysulat, 36, were found inside a red 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage in a section of the river running through the 6600 block of Riverview Road on Wednesday. A sheriff’s investigator searching for the couple found their submerged car, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton.
On Thursday, medical examiner’s office staff said that the two drowned and ruled their deaths an accident.
It’s unclear how the car ended up in the river.
Dolman and Ysulat, a dating couple, have not been to work since Jan. 8 and their cellphones have been turned off, said Ireton. They left behind medications and other personal items at their homes, according to the sheriff’s office.
