Peninsula: Remains may be of a missing Kitsap woman

QUILCENE — A human skull found near Quilcene last Saturday may be that of a woman missing from Kitsap County.

According to Sgt. Ben Stamper of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, preliminary analysis indicates the skull belonged to a woman.

“Preliminary speculation points to the skull as a female around 30 years old, but it must be confirmed,” Stamper said.

The only missing person fitting that description on the west side of Puget Sound is from Kitsap County, Stamper said, noting there are no dental records for the woman.

“If we had the dental records, we could determine a match,” Stamper said.

Stamper did not identify the missing woman.
