Officials think body found in Olympic National Park is missing hiker

Associated Press

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK, Wash. – Officials believe a body found in Olympic National Park is a hiker who went missing in April.

The Peninsula Daily News reported the body is being examined to see if it is 20-year-old Zach Krull.

Krull had just started his freshman year at The Evergreen State College in Olympia when he went out on a solo camping trip.

Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell said he believes the body is Krull based on the gear discovered.

A hiker found the body this past weekend. A ranger-led team retrieved it the next day.
