Lewis County Coroner Identifies Victim of Fatal Logging Accident


A man killed in a Jan. 10 logging accident has been identified by the Lewis County Coroner’s Office. 

Christopher L. Braae, 31, of Yelm, died of severe blunt force head injuries, according to the coroner’s office, which listed the manner of death as accidental. 

The Daily News of Longview reported last week that the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries was looking into a logger who was killed while working near Castle Rock on Monday.

At the time, Labor and Industries spokeswoman Dina Lorraine said the logger worked for Brindle Technical Logging Inc., a company registered out of Mossyrock.
