GRAHAM, Wash. - A body was found Saturday afternoon at a vacant home in Graham, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

 

The body was discovered outside of a home in the 22000 block of 124th Avenue East.

 

Ed Troyer of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness news that the incident is being investigated as an apparent homicide.

 

“It’s obviously a homicide. He was bound, and he was dumped here sometime, I believe, overnight. The body was not discovered until this morning,” said Troyer.

 

According to officials, a neighbor spotted the body and called 911.

 

Investigators arrived at the location and said the man was killed.

 

Neighbors in the area told investigators that they saw two men in a green SUV slow down near the home after midnight Saturday.

 

The body has not been identified, but had a red bandana.

 

Investigators think the victim is in his 40s, and detectives are working to find out more about the victim as they search for the men seen in the area.
