Unidentified Wiki

Tukwila John Doe was a male whose partial skeletal remains were discovered while excavating for a new home in Tukwila, Washington in 1997. He is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project. At the time, officials speculated that the decedent could have been a victim of Gary Ridgway.

In February 2021, it was found that the remains actually belonged to a male, minimizing Ridgway's potential involvement in the case.
