PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - A body found Monday evening at a Puyallup home is believed to be the man police have been looking for since bloody carpeting was found burning Aug. 13 along an Auburn road.

Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says evidence suggests it’s the body of 30-year-old Brandon Zomalt of Puyallup. His DNA was identified in the bloody items found on fire off Peasley Canyon Road. Troyer says carpeting and flooring missing from the Puyallup house matched the material in Auburn.

KOMO reports (https://bit.ly/1CnrGC4 ) deputies were making a welfare check on the home when they found the body.

Confirmation of the identity awaits the autopsy by the Pierce County medical examiner’s office.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1sXE70P ) Zomalt has a criminal record for harassment, reckless driving and resisting arrest.
