Puyallup police say a man found dead Sunday in a parking lot at the Washington State Fair apparently died of a self-inflicted stab wound to the chest.
Puyallup police say citizens called 911 just before 5:30 p.m. Sunday to say there was a body in the blue parking lot. Police arrived and found the dead man and recovered a knife from under his body.
The man was identified as Nicholas Scheer, 27, police said Tuesday.
Police Chief Bryan Jeter said police interacted with the man several times on Sunday after reports that he had been intoxicated and disorderly at local businesses, according to the News Tribune.
