Who mailed slain Woodinville man’s credit cards, license to his home?

The Associated Press

King County sheriff’s detectives say they’re trying to identify who mailed the credit cards and driver’s license of a Woodinville homicide victim to his family.

Earl Cossey was found dead in his home of blunt force trauma to the head, and the Medical Examiner’s Office placed the date of death as April 23. The 71-year-old was a former skydiving instructor who packed the parachutes that were given to legendary skyjacker D.B. Cooper more than four decades ago.

The sheriff’s office says that within the last few days, someone mailed Cossey’s license, credit cards and a casino gaming card to his home. The mail was forwarded to a relative.

Detectives believe the items were found by someone who was simply trying to return them. They hope the person comes forward, so they can learn more about where the items were discovered.
