Mudslide has claimed the lives of 33 people

The number of people who died in the Snohomish County mudslide is now at  33.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office also said this morning they have positively identified 30 of the 33 individuals.

This morning, the medical examiner’s office staff said they have identified Billy L. Spillers.

Spillers, 30,  was a chief petty officer in the Navy stationed at Naval Station Everett. Spillers and his children were apparently watching TV when the mudslide hit. Killed along with him were Kaylee Spillers, 5, and his 13-year-old stepson Jovon Mangual.

Spillers’ daughter, Brooke, 2, is among the 12 people still missing.

Spillers’ wife, Joielle, wasn’t home when the slide hit and is safe. The couple’s son, Jacob, 4, was pulled from the mud.

Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center has released a 58-year-old man injured in the mudslide.

The man, who was not identified by the trauma center, was discharged  Saturday. He was transferred to a rehabilitation facility, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg wrote in a news release.

Three people injured in the slide remain at Harborview; two are in intensive care.
