Resident's body found on side of 251st StreetOCEAN PARK, Wash. - The Pacific County Sheriff's Office arrested Glenn Alvin DeHart of Ocean Park for first-degree murder just before 1 p.m. on Friday.

About 12 hours earlier, at 12:17 a.m., the body of Ronald J. Burt, also of Ocean Park, was found along the side of 251st Street.

DeHart was arrested following an investigation.

The Sheriff's Office is not releasing many details about the murder, but is requesting anyone who may have seen or been in contact with Burt to call the sheriff's office at (360) 642-9397 or 875-9397.

Burt's body was found by deputies and paramedics after someone called 9-1-1 to report a "man down and not breathing" on 251st Street. An autopsy of the body is being scheduled by the Pacific County Coroner's Office.

The sheriff's office has not released any information on how Burt died, or why deputies suspect DeHart.
