Death Toll Rises to 33 in Oso Mudslide

Posted: Updated:

EVERETT, WA - The death toll from the landslide that hit the Washington town of Oso has risen to 33.  

The Snohomish County medical examiner's office says it has received three more victims. Of the 30 people dead, 30 have been identified. Before the three additional victims were recorded, 13 people were listed as missing.

The latest name is 30-year-old Billy L. Spillers of Arlington. The medical examiner says like the others, Spillers died of multiple blunt force injuries in the March 22 slide that crushed a residential area along the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
