The body of a man was found in an isolated wooded ravine off West Division Street in Forks around 5 p.m. Monday night.
The unidentified man’s body appears to be between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, Police Chief Mike Powell said.
Some teen-agers found the body lying on its back in a creek or drainage ditch, Powell said.
Mud covering the body made determining identifying details about the body difficult.
Officers were to be stationed at the scene to keep it secure overnight, Powell said.A full investigation will begin this morning with the assistance of the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department, he said.
