Burien Police/King County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched Wednesday morning, Mar. 20 at 8:44 a.m. to a call of a male that was found unresponsive in a Porta Potty at the Burien Skate Park.

Deputies arrived along with responders from the Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department, and it was determined that the 34-year old male was deceased.

The cause of death will be determined by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office at a later time.

Police say that no foul play was suspected.

We reached out to City Manager Brian Wilson about this incident, and he said:

“Regarding the Annex, this is an important essential facility in Burien that serves many diverse populations, including youth and individuals in need of services.

“We are often challenged to meet these demands for diverse services and programs while at the same time, ensuring they can coexist together at the same facility.

“Our Parks Department and City staff are committed to this effort.”

The Skate Park is located at 14549 4th Ave SW:
