STEVENS PASS — Authorities on Tuesday identified the woman found dead two weeks ago east of the Stevens Pass summit, and said her homicide may be related to a vehicle found on fire the same day her body was located.

Callie Childers, a 25-year-old Marysville woman, was found dead by homicidal violence Sept. 7 on the shoulder of Highway 2, eight miles east of the pass at milepost 73. Investigators now say her car, a black 2013 Chrysler 200, was discovered burning in the 6200 block of Lowell-Snohomish River Road, just west of the town of Snohomish.

The finding of Childers’ body was reported to Chelan County Sheriff’s Office about 8:30 p.m. Snohomish County investigators say her car was discovered burning that same evening.

Childers listed a Marysville residential address, but was last known to be living without housing in the Everett area. Authorities have not disclosed her precise cause of death.

Anyone with information about Childers’ death or her vehicle is asked to call the Chelan County sheriff’s tipline at 509-667-6845, or submit a tip online.
