A body found here, buried under debris in a residential neighborhood, is believed to be that of 7-year-old Roxanne Doll, who vanished from her home more than a week ago, police said Sunday.

“Her parents have been notified of that presumptive identification” by Snohomish County medical examiner Dr. Eric Kiesel, police spokesman Elliott Woodall said.

“It is not a positive identification,” he said.

That will require an autopsy, which probably will be conducted today, Woodall said.

“Now that we’re no longer a missing-person case, we’re a death investigation, we’ll be dealing with the possibility” of additional charges against Richard M. Clark, he said.

Clark of Everett, a friend of the child’s family, was arrested Friday on a charge of tampering with a witness in the case concerning bloodstains found in his van.

The remains were found Saturday by children playing on an embankment across the street from homes in a residential section of northeast Everett.
