Woodland, Wa: The Cowlitz County Sheriff Office is investigating a case where partial human remains washed ashore on Saturday evening on the banks of the Columbia River in the Woodland area.

The body was in advanced stages of decomposition and appears to have been in the water for months and possibly for years. There is no obvious signs of foul play, but it is too early to say for certain what the cause or manner of death is.

The victim was wearing Levi blue jeans model "521" slim tapered fit. Size 29w x 32i. There was also one Nike shoe that is a size 8 (not sure if woman or mans at this time.)

The Cowlitz Coroner is working with Nike to determine the time this shoe was manufactured and sold, and whether it was designed as a woman's or man's shoe.

The Coroner has also been in touch with a forensic anthropologist in King County who will be assisting on the case.

Detectives will be working closely with the Coroner's Office; talking with other law enforcement agencies who have missing persons that may be related.

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