Remains found in Bremerton last year identified as 41-year-old Kitsap County man

The remains of a badly decomposed body found in Bremerton in late 2022 have been identified as belonging to a man from Kitsap County.

According to the Kitsap County Medical Examiner’s Office, the remains are those of 41-year-old Derek Kym Foshay.

In January, the medical examiner’s office released a forensic facial sketch of the body in hopes that tips from the public could help identify him.

“In response, the public provided a great amount of additional information, and the Medical Examiner’s Office, with help from Washington State Forensic Anthropologist Andrew Seidel and Washington State Forensic Odontologist Kyle Tanaka, was able to identify the remains through medical and dental records as those of Derek Kym Foshay, a 41-year-old male from Kitsap County,” the office said in its release Wednesday.
