Detectives with the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit are looking for any information on an unidentified female who may have been the victim of a homicide sometime since March of 2014.

Detectives received information they believe may be credible that a female had been killed at a house in Burien and buried on the property. The female is described as being a white female, or possibly part Native American. She is said to be in her 30’s, and of average build. Her hair was dark brown, but had possibly been dyed blond. Her name may be “Shelly”and she may also go by the name of “Marshmallow” and it’s believed she lived a high risk and transient lifestyle.

The abandoned residence in the 12600 block of 14th Ave South where the homicide may have occurred was searched by Major Crimes detectives on Wednesday and the yard was searched on Friday. No human remains were located.

If anyone has information on the identity of the above described female they are urged to call the King County Sheriff’s Office 24/7 at (206) 296.3311.
