DARRINGTON, Wash. —
After six days of searching, people perhaps aren’t the only ones showing signs of strain. Shane Barco’s 3-year-old German shepherd has found bodies and body parts. But, Barco said, the dog gets frustrated when they don’t bring anybody out alive.
Days of combing through what Barco called a blender of debris have exhausted the dog, leading Barco to stop the search for a while.
The medical examiner’s office has so far formally identified three victims: Christina Jefferds, 45, of Arlington; Stephen A. Neal, 55, of Darrington; and Linda L. McPherson, 69, of Arlington.
