Bellingham Police gathered evidence in a cul-de-sac near Fairhaven Park with the Federal Bureau of Investigation Wednesday.

Around 10:30 a.m., Bellingham police’s crime scene investigator assisted the FBI document and gather evidence involving a “suspicious circumstance,” according to Lt. Danette Beckley, a police spokeswoman.

Beckley said officers assisted the FBI for about three hours. Whether that was time on scene or included time used to write a report was unclear, Beckley said.

The FBI is the lead agency on the case.

Ayn Dietrich-Williams, public affairs officer at the FBI’s Seattle field office, said she couldn’t comment any further on Wednesday’s activity “given the ongoing nature of our investigation.”
