Teen identified as 36th Oso mudslide victim

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office today identified Denver Harris, 14, as one of those killed by the March 22 Oso mudslide.

He is the 36th victim identified, and was the last person identified of the 36 people whose bodies had been recovered as of Friday morning.

Seven people remained missing this afternoon, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Denver had reportedly been home alone at the time of the slide.

On Facebook pages, friends and family members had shared stories of how Denver enjoyed going on long hikes in the mountains and once gave his mother his shirt to wear for the two miles back to the car after she fell in water. A relative wrote that she had a box of Pop-Tarts waiting for him.

Three other victims were identified Thursday: Michael W. Pearson, 74, Mark Gustafson, 55, and Bonnie Gullikson, 91.

Two people injured in the mudslide remain in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The hospital said Friday that a 37-year-old man and an 81-year-old man are both in satisfactory condition.

And a 25-year-old woman, Amanda Skorjanc, who has told reporters about her rescue with her baby, was discharged this afternoon from Harborview in satisfactory condition. She was transferred to another facility for inpatient rehabilitation care.

Her 5-month-old son, Duke Suddarth, was discharged Wednesday from Children’s hospital in Seattle.
