The location is roughly a mile away from where officers discovered the 24-year-old son of Martinez-Cosman, who they believe was kidnapped by the man who accompanied Martinez-Cosman to the game.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office will verify the identify of the body and the manner and cause of death, according to the police.
Charges against a man who accompanied Martinez-Cosman to the game and is accused of later kidnapping her adult son, setting her SUV on fire, and stealing diamonds from Costco include new information regarding the ongoing investigation into Martinez-Cosman’s disappearance.

Brett Although Michael Gitchel, 46, is charged with numerous felonies for offenses allegedly committed in the days following the March 31 baseball game at T-Mobile Park, he has not been prosecuted in connection with Martinez-Cosman’s 58-year-old disappearance and assumed death. He was detained last week and is still there while waiting to post a $5 million bond.
Gitchel, who last resided in Orting, Pierce County, was charged on Monday with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping. He is said to have kidnapped and attempted to strangle Martinez-Cosman’s son, 24, early on April 2. He was also accused of first-degree theft, second-degree unauthorized possession of a firearm, and second-degree arson.
According to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, further charges may be brought if Seattle police refer additional information to prosecutors as part of their investigation.
