UPDATE 1: Cause of death determined in Jeremy Peck case; investigation moving forward
Details not publicly released, but Peck's death being called "suspicious" by police
King County Medical Examiners have released the cause of death in the Jeremy Peck case to detectives and family, although the information has not been released publicly since it is an ongoing investigation, according to Peck’s uncle John Peck.
According to Det. Renee Whit with the Seattle Police Department, homicide detectives are working the case which they are treating as a “suspicious death.” She said it is an open and active investigation.
According to James Sosik Jr. with the King County Medical Examiner's office on March 25, Jeremy Peck's cause of death was "undetermined" with no toxicological or body trauma causes identified.
However, this information from the medical examiner's office runs contrary to information received from Peck's family, who told the Herald they were told a cause of death was determined (as mentioned at the top of the story).
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
Jeremy Peck went missing during the early hours of Dec. 24, 2010 and his body was found on Bainbridge Island on Jan. 19.
