Body found near Bellevue train tracks

Bellevue police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found near the 11700 block of Northeast 12th Street.

Foul play is not suspected. Someone called 911 just before 2:30 p.m. Thursday and police located the man’s body beneath Northeast 12th Street, close to some train tracks, Officer Seth Tyler said in a news release. Cold weather may have played a role in the man’s death, Tyler wrote, explaining that the man was wearing only jeans and a light layer of clothing.

With nighttime temperatures expected to plummet over the next week, Tyler said police are encouraging those who need shelter to go to the Eastside Men’s Shelter at the International Paper Plant Building, 1899 120th Ave. N.E. The Bellevue shelter opens nightly at 8:30 p.m.
