You see, they were filming one of those “dance videos” on TikTok and all was going well. That is, until they came across the dead bodies in trash bags that had washed up on the shore.
However, give these teens credit because they did do the right thing. They immediately called 911, and then they posted the video. Now, the King County Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified the two victims.
The two victims were Jessica Lewis, 35, and Austin Wenner, 27. All they were was a common-law simply enjoying life. However, they weren’t able to live their “best life” because someone did them in and cut their life short.
Apparently, the King County Medical Examiner’s officer has determined that the couple had been murdered about a week prior to the discovery of their remains from these TikTok teens. Moreover, the authorities are actually praising the fact that the teens went ahead and posted the video.
Seattle Police Detective Mark Jamieson confirmed that the TikTok video had not been posted until a day after the teens’ grisly discovery.
“Actually, we are glad that the video is out there,” the detective said. “After speaking with the people involved, we were able to corroborate some of the information that they shared.
Basically, these kids found this bag on the beach, it smelled terrible, and so they called 911. The officers were out there an hour and a half later, and then law enforcement did some further investigation and they did determine that it was indeed human remains. That’s when the detectives and Medical Examiner’s office was called.”
Jessica Lewis was a mother of four and she had dated Wenner for eight years, according to her aunt, Gina Jaschke.
“They were simply just nice and normal people,” Aunt Gina said. “They didn’t deserve this to happen to them. Nobody does.”
She said that she hopes anyone with information will come forward.
It’s good to see that these teens did the right thing, and hopefully others will report what they know about this case to the police as well.
