    WA - Jesus Isador-Mendoza, 18, found cut in half, Tacoma, 22 Oct 2014

    Police are investigating the death of a person found in a Tacoma ravine.

    A citizen reported seeing a possible body about 1 p.m. Sunday below Delin Street, south of South Tacoma Way, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

    Officers recovered it Monday, she said, because the hillside was treacherous and it was dark and raining when it was found. Officers secured the area overnight until the body could be reached, Cool said.

    I just clicked on the link you listed, and it seems like the body has been ID'd...
    "The person had been identified, but the name was not released pending notification of family.
    Further details were not immediately available"

    A man whose body was found at the bottom of a steep ravine in Tacoma was reported missing in October after he never showed up for class at Pierce College.

    Jesus Isidor-Mendoza, 19, was last seen the morning of Oct. 22 as he left his mom’s Lakewood home. She reported him missing days later when he didn’t show up for class or return home.

    Although the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has not determined how Isidor-Mendoza died, police are investigating the case as a homicide.

    Detectives believe the house and the ravine area were frequented by several transient people who may have information on this crime.

    A man was booked into the Pierce County Jail on Friday for investigation of first-degree murder in the stabbing death of a teenager whose body was found in a Tacoma ravine earlier this week.

    Police spokeswoman Loretta Cool released no details of the arrest, saying they would have to wait until the alleged killer appears in court next week. Court records indicate he is in his 40s and has a history of drug-related convictions.

    Wallace Jackson, 48; Crystal Jackson, 30; and Darrel Daves, 49, are to be arraigned in Pierce County Superior Court on Thursday afternoon. They were arrested over the weekend in the slaying of Jesus Isidor-Mendoza, whose remains were discovered in a Tacoma ravine last week.

    Court records indicate Isidor-Mendoza was raped, drowned in a bucket and his body cut in half some time around Oct. 22... The teenager’s remains there were stuffed into a duffle bag and dumped in a ravine near the 3000 block of South Delin Street in Tacoma.

    From the Newstribune article:
    The motive was murky, but Wallace Jackson and Daves are know users of illegal drugs and there was the suggestion in court records that Crystal Jackson might have thought Isidor-Mendoza stole from her.
    and
    Prosecutors believe the motive for murder was a dispute over drugs.

    What kind of a dispute over what kind of drugs leads to male rape, drowning and dismemberment?

    I could actually see a shooting or the like in a drug debt or turf rivalry, but ALL OF THAT???

    this says it all doesn't.....

    ""This gruesome scenario could be an extreme anti-drug ad," Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said in a Tuesday news release.

    All three are now being held in Pierce County Jail on a 72-hour hold while detectives continue to investigate the murder.''
