Daughter of C-H grad found dead in Wash. state mudslide

  • April 10, 2014

The body of the 2-year-old daughter of Billy Spillers, the Chartiers-Houston graduate who died in last month’s mudslide near Arlington, Wash., was identified Tuesday.

The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office announced Tuesday night it had identified the body of Brooke Spillers more than two weeks after the deadly March 22 mudslide.

The medical examiner has now identified 32 of 36 bodies recovered in the mudslide.

The body of Billy Spillers, who grew up in Chartiers Township, was identified Monday. Spillers’ 5-year-old daughter, Kaylee, was found dead in the mudslide March 28, and the body of his stepson, Jovon Mangual, was identified April 3.

His wife, Jonielle, was not home at the time and the couple’s 4-year-old son, Jacob, was rescued by a helicopter in the hours after the mudslide.
