"We are working closely with the families and extend our most heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends during this difficult time," said the Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office.

Families were notified in person before the list was made public. A chaplain and sheriff's deputy are providing resources for families in their time of need.

The medical examiners office says it will update the list twice a day: 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
