Hikers find body of cyclist killed in logging-road crash

BELFAIR, Mason County (AP) — A woman hiking with two sons on a logging road near Belfair on Monday discovered the body of a man who died in a bicycle crash.

The Mason County Sheriff’s Office says it was apparent at the scene that the man had crashed his bicycle. An autopsy showed 34-year-old Jared W. Shumaker, of Belfair, died of head and neck injuries consistent with the accident.

The Olympian reports the hikers came across a barking dog that wanted to be followed. The dog led them to Shumaker’s body.
