An artist’s depiction of a deceased man recovered off of Camano Island.

Island County authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying an unknown deceased male.

The body in question was retrieved from the waters off of Madrona Beach on Camano Island in late October.

Fingerprints and DNA have been submitted, but have yet to hit a match.

The deceased is an adult male, 5-foot-8 inches in height, 151 pounds, with dark hair and a beard.

There was graying in the beard, and he had no scars, marks, or tattoos.

It appears the man had been in the water for an extended period of time, and no clothes were found with the body.

The Island County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the person is not Sean Pickering or Walter Mead, who both went missing from Jefferson County.

If you have any information, you can contact Dr. Robert Bishop with the Island County Coroner’s Office at (360) 679-7358, or Detective Robert Mirabal with the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

Mirabal can be reached at (360) 679-9567, or by email at tips@islandcountywa.gov.

The photos keep droppin’ and poppin’.

During the slowdown created by the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve taken some time to wander back through some of the 20 billion pics which have graced Coupeville Sports.

Today we stroll into 2014, the third year of the blog, and come away with what you see here – the snaps which I think best capture the feel of that year.

Aimee Bishop has never frowned in her entire life. True story.

Aimee Bishop has never frowned in her entire life. True story.

She is the smile that powers Coupeville.

Everywhere she goes, in everything she does, Aimee Bishop spreads joy. That’s her job, her mission, her business — and business is good.

A former Wolf athletic star herself back in the day, she has gone on to bless Cow Town with a daughter (Breeanna Messner) who was as smart, talented and caring as any athlete to ever wear the red and black.

If there is an event, Aimee is there, phone bouncing from hand to hand as she keeps the lights on, makes sure the PA system doesn’t flame out and each and every fellow fan gets a smile, a nod, a hug, a brief bit of the “Bishop Glow.”

Today is her birthday but really, we should celebrate her every day. Coupeville would be 44.7% less fun if she had not returned to The Rock.

Now, at this point, she is likely rolling her eyes and saying “Oh, you guys!!”

It’s not gonna work, however.

She may try and be modest and say she’s not doing anything special, that she’s just one of many behind-the-scenes worker bees and proud mamas.

But, deep down she knows the truth, even if she won’t publicly admit it.

Aimee Bishop is a freakin’ American hero. End of story.

Embrace your awesomeness, Aimee. The rest of us have already accepted it as a stone cold fact.

When he’s not busy working as the Island County Coroner, Robert Bishop lives a second life.

In that time, he’s a camera-clickin’ paparazzi who can be often found haunting the games his daughter, Coupeville High School senior Breeanna Messner, plays in.

Tuesday night she and her Wolf girls’ basketball teammates tipped off with visiting Cedarcrest, and Bishop was on the scene to capture the moments, big and small, that go into a night of high school hoops.
