Detectives believe the victim knew the suspects. Investigators asked for anyone with home surveillance video in the neighborhoods north and south of Marysville Pilchuck High School to look for suspicious activity, such as people running or walking, between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the victim and determine the cause and manner of death.
