* Homeless campsite dismantled

An unauthorized campsite discovered in a heavily wooded area on the Shoreline Community College campus and used by a homeless person has been dismantled.


The camp was the site where the body of a 42-year-old woman was found Friday, Sept. 3, 2010. The incident was investigated by King County Sheriff’s Office detectives. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office is waiting for toxicology tests to be returned before determining the cause of death. No arrests were made.


The camp was also used by a man who has been ordered by Shoreline Police and college officials to not return to the campus.


College officials and Shoreline Police are working together to survey all the undeveloped areas of 83-acre campus that abuts the city of Shoreline’s wooded Boeing Creek Park. If anyone is found camped on college property, they will be given a list of social-services resources and advised to leave, college officials said. A subsequent sweep will be made to remove any camp material, they said.
