The body of Dwight Clark was found on Wednesday at a waterfront in Bellingham. The Bellingham Herald broke news that Dwight Clark was found might have ended some questions, but it has raised even more about what happened to Clark. Clark went missing after a late night party in the early morning hours of September 26, and had been heading back to his dorm room at Nash Hall. The Western Washington University student never made it back though, and on October 6 an employee for the Port of Bellingham found him in the water. According to the Seattle Times, identification was made by a driver’s license in his pocket, and the search for Clark was called off.
This is such a tragic ending to this case, and there are still no answers about how Clark died. The investigation in this case will keep going until they can come up with some answers to that question, but meanwhile friends and family of Clark are planning a candlelight vigil in his honor. According to a Facebook page that was set up to help find Dwight Clark, the candlelight memorial will take place at Brannan Skate Park on Saturday night. Anyone who wants to attend has been invited, and they are starting the memorial at 6 p.m.
This is a case that lacks closure for those close to Dwight Clark, and many people are still seeking answers to what happened here. There was nothing in Clark’s life that has led to information about what happened, and there seem to be very few leads that the authorities have been able to follow. Hopefully some kind of a lead comes from the examination that will be taking place on Clark, and that anyone responsible for Clark going missing is brought to justice swiftly.
