Spokane fugitive dead in Lynnwood lake

A Spokane fugitive found dead in a Western Washington lake has been identified as Seth Brian Brandley, 28.

Brandley was wanted on a Washington Department of Corrections warrant when he fled police in the Everett area Feb. 26.

Authorities responded Feb. 29 to North Lake Stickney Drive in Lynnwood for a report of a body floating in the water near a dock.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office identified the man Monday as Brandley, a Spokane resident with an extensive criminal history that includes three drug convictions in Spokane.

He also has convictions in Stevens County for residential burglary and second-degree theft.

He was sentenced in April 2011 in Spokane County for taking a motor vehicle without permission.

Brandley's cause and manner of death are pending investigation, the Medical Examiner's Office said.

Brandley leaves behind a wife, Tracey S. O'Blenness, 46, whom he married in 2010.
