Seattle Police and King County Medical Examiners personnel appear to be looking at a body inside a car at Phinney Avenue North and North 56th Street by Woodland Park Zoo this afternoon.
James was walking by around 3:45 p.m. when he saw them putting on gloves and opening the door to a blue Honda parked on the east side of the street. SPD has blocked off the northbound lanes of Phinney Avenue, as well as the sidewalk.
Seattle Fire Department’s Real Time 911 shows a call coming in at 2:53 p.m. for an aid response.
We have a call into Seattle Police for more information and will update as soon as we know more.
Update 4:20 p.m.: Det. Mark Jamieson tells me SPD is investigating this as a suicide.
