Carl Woracker found dead

Carl Derek Woracker has been found dead. His ex-wife emailed me with a link to this article. Carl, who was 26, had been missing from Spokane, Washington since 1998. One of his shinbones was found in a wooded area in 2004, and the second shinbone and two thighbones turned up in 2009, near where his car was abandoned, but nothing else was located. DNA testing just identified the bones.

No word on whether foul play is suspected or not. Given the passage of time and the fact that only the legs were found, we may never know. I find it a bit odd, however, that pieces of Carl’s legs were found in separate places.

    The usual explanation when bones are found scattered is that animals carry them hither and yon.

    It sounds like an animal carried one of his tibias into the woods; wouldn’t be difficult for a large animal to do. I’d be alot more surprised if the remains had been found the other way around(only one bone near the car,etc)

    I always do kind of wonder how things aren’t found sooner, animals and are…they found the car….how far do they look?

    I agree it was probably animals that moved him around. They have coyotes up there, even right near the city.

    Hello, My name is Dave and Karl was my Cousin – up untill he was about 13 – 14 mine and his parents would see each other regularly…He then went abroad which was the last time i saw him….I see Karls Dad at least 3-4 times a year and he is VERY dis-traught. Karl has a brother called Graeme with whom i speak with regularly as well.

    I did not know much about Karl, what music did he like, what were his hobbies, was he in trouble, or did he mix with the wrong crowd – any information would be great and helpful to build a picture of him.

    If his family / wife are reading this then the Brewer family thoughts are with you…

    Thank you,

      my thoughts are with you and the rest of carls family, I used to hang around with carl and his best mates when we were all teenagers, he was a lovely, caring guy, and I am deeply shocked at what has happened to him, I cannot imagine that he would get involved with any kind of trouble, but I hope for the sake of all his family that whoever did this is found. RIP carl. Sally xxx

    Remembering Carl today on what would have been his 41st Birthday. I was Carl’ s girlfriend for about 2 years when we were 16 / 17. Dave when I knew Carl he was in to Richard Marx music and he loved his Motorbike. Today I have spent time with His Mum Joy and his brother Graeme. It would be really good to find out what really happened to him and I hope for all of our sakes one day we do. He is missed so much. RIP Carl we are all thinking of you especially today. Marsha xxx
