An employee discovered the naked body of an apparent burglary suspect inside a Chinese restaurant in Orchards on Wednesday morning, according to police.
No foul play is suspected in the death, and no suspects are being sought, Vancouver Police Department Sgt. Tim Huberty said.
Officers were called to Tender Green Chinese Kitchen, 12329 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd., at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday when an employee arrived to open the restaurant and discovered the deceased man in the kitchen, Huberty said.
He added that based on the circumstances, the incident is being investigated as a burglary in which the suspect accessed the building through the roof.
The deceased person, Huberty said, was “more than likely the person who committed the burglary,” but he added that detectives are still investigating.
Huberty said that detectives hadn’t yet identified the man, and they haven’t determined how the man died. An autopsy by the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of his death.
