A boy’s discovery of a human femur in Federal Way led police to skeletal remains in a wooded area in 36000 block of 20th Avenue Southwest this morning.
The boy was playing in a wooded area last night when he found the bone and brought it to his parents, who called police and gave it to them. This morning, Federal Way Police Department detectives discovered the rest of the remains about 100 feet from where the initial bone, believe to be a femur, was found.
Detectives believe the remains may belong to an adult male and do not know if foul play was involved in the person’s death. But because of the condition of the remains, police say the King County Medical Examiner’s Office will have to conduct lab work to try to identify the body.
