Washington: Man found dead inside tent in rural Clark County, surrounded by explosive devices

A man was found dead in a tent full of improvised explosive devices in rural north Clark County on Monday night, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) reported.

At around 8:10 p.m. Monday, a driver called 911 after they were flagged down by a woman who said her boyfriend was unresponsive in a tent at their campsite. Deputies responded to the area, east of Chelatchie Prairie off U.S. Forest Service Forest Road 54, and were led by the woman to where she and her boyfriend had been camping.

The woman told deputies her boyfriend was possibly setting trip wires and traps around their tent the day before. As deputies got closer to the tent, they saw what looked like an improvised explosive device set around the tent. Deputies retreated and bomb technicians were called to the scene.
