Unsolved: Ken Casey Lee, 38

The body of Ken Casey Lee was never found, but the Kitsap County Coroner’s Office felt confident enough to issue a death certificate, with the manner of death listed as a homicide.

For Chad Birkenfeld, a detective with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, his career cold case is Ken Casey Lee, a 38-year-old who disappeared on Oct. 24, 2002, after an argument in Seabeck.

Birkenfeld easily recites the details of Lee’s death. Though his body was never found, it is classified as a homicide.

Birkenfeld opens the Lee file occasionally, refreshing his memory of the details. He still gets tips and follows up leads, and he has even conducted interviews recently.
