Issaquah Police are seeking the public’s help in determining what happened to a man whose body was found weeks after he left a hospital.
Jose Tavares, 49, left Swedish/Issaquah on March 20, and his body was found in a field northeast of Northeast Juniper Street on April 5, police said. The body appeared to have been at the location for several days.
Police would like to clarify what happened after Tavares left the hospital. It appears the cause of death was natural, but police are continuing the investigation.
Anyone who thinks they saw Tavares after March 20 is asked to call the Issaquah Police Department at 425-837-3200 and ask for a detective. Tavares was Hispanic, 5-foot-4 and 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
