Several days ago a young woman, Patricia Devalkeneer, who had battled addiction was found deceased in a recycle bin in the 900 block of 128th in South Everett.
She had recently been released from the Snohomish County jail on May 17th, 2017 but attempts at obtaining further treatment were denied by Catholic Community Service because she had been in jail for several months.
Sadly it was this vulnerable time period that led to her death.
The coroner changed the cause of death from overdose to homicide because there was no way she could’ve gotten herself into this bin. They suspect that there was more than one person involved.
