Cause of death under investigation

PORT TOWNSEND — A 23-year-old woman was found dead outside her trailer at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds on Tuesday morning and investigators consider the death suspicious.

The Port Townsend Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and East Jefferson Fire Rescue responded to a call Tuesday at 8:52 a.m. regarding a woman lying face down on the ground outside her trailer, according to a Department of Emergency Management press release.

Upon arrival, medics pronounced Victoria K. Brown deceased, according to the press release.

The incident is under a suspicious death investigation by Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and Port Townsend Police detectives, said Port Townsend Detective Jon Stuart late Tuesday afternoon.

Brown was transient, Stuart said, and was living in her trailer at the fairgrounds as part of the homeless encampment there.

Anyone with information about Brown or circumstances surrounding her death is asked to contact Stuart at 360-344-9752.

More information on the incident will be released over the next few days, Stuart said.
