Soldier, Nephew Of Oso Mudslide Victims, Found Dead

Posted: Updated:
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A soldier found dead in the woods near Olympia was the nephew of two presumed victims of last month's devastating landslide in Washington state.
    
Capt. Cynthia Holuta of the Army's 7th Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord says Spc. Christopher Dombroski had visited the site of the landslide near Oso several times to assist with search and recovery efforts. As reported earlier by KING-TV, he was the nephew of Steve and Theresa Harris, who are listed among the missing in the landslide.
    
The 20-year-old Dombroski was from Wasilla, Alaska. He had been missing since Sunday night in the Capitol Forest near Olympia. Thurston County search teams found his body Tuesday morning and said he appeared to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
    
Authorities said no foul play was suspected but the death remains under investigation.
