OMAK – A body was found Thursday evening, April 11, between Engh Road and Omak River Road east of town.

The decomposed body was found by a person checking the area for a coyote den, said Okanogan County Sheriff Tony Hawley.

“The body was located under sagebrush and the reporting party stated he saw bones, then looked closer and observed a human skull with gold teeth,” Hawley said. “Okanogan County deputies responded to the location, then contacted Okanogan County Coroner Rodriguez.”

Deputies assisted Rodriguez at the location with removing the human remains.

Identifying the person is still under investigation, Hawley said.
