Autopsy Confirms Body is Azriel Carver; Cause of Death, Drowning
by Susan Marie Kovalinsky March 19, 2010

Update: Autopsy confirms body is Azriel Carver; cause of death was drowning
Police believe
a body that washed to shore is that of missing 8 year old boy Azriel Carver. Carver had been missing since Saturday night, when he and his mother, Shantina “Kat” Smiley, 29, last were seen north of Olympia.

The body was found yesterday afternoon on the southern tip of Fox Island of Puget Sound. Sheriff’s officials received a call just before 2 p.m. that a body was found by a woman walking along Pebble Beach, below a steep bluff off Paiute Trail road.

County officials had to comfort the boy's father, who had come from New York state to help in the search.

"I know there’s a lot of crazy questions that are going to be coming, from why it happened, how it happened and what had happened,” Carver said. 'They ended up in the water, and the tidal pattern was really high and really fast, and it just ended very tragic. It’s a crazy series of events that unfolded and ended so tragically,' he said."

The whole night planned. Making herself known as lost, stalling for time, contact with ex. cell phone left at home, nervous all night, van backed into water with doors open. (thought tide would come up higher)items in van found planted. purse gone, wallet on seat. (staged) I believe a boat was involved and she is in hiding. Poor, precious little boy.
