Marysville Police discover body in Quilceda Creek

MARYSVILLE - On Sept. 3,  at approximately 3:15 p.m. Marysville Police responded to an unrelated call of trespassers in the 9700 block of State Avenue. While investigating the trespass a Marysville Police Sergeant discovered the body of a male lying face down in Quilceda Creek.
