Investigators hope clothing can help ID body found on river bank near Woodland

WOODLAND, Wash. -- A decomposed body was discovered Saturday on the east bank of the Columbia River near Woodland.

The body was recovered at 2025 Dike Road, according to the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office.

The body appeared to have been in the water for months or years, said Deputy Charlie Rosenzweig.

There were no obvious signs of foul play.

The victim was found wearing Levi blue jeans model "521" slim tapered fit and size 29 x 32. The person was also wearing a size 8 Nike shoe.

The coroner is working with Nike to determine when the shoe was manufactured and sold, and whether it was a woman's or man's shoe.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective Sgt. Brad Thurman at 360-577-3092.
