Bodies found in viral video identified

Jessica Lewis, 35, and Austin "Cash" Wenner, 27.

Investigators have identified the remains found at Alki Beach on June 19th as those of 35-year-old mother of four, Jessica Lewis and her boyfriend of eight years 27-year-old Austin "Cash" Wenner.


In a statement released by police, they determined that both Lewis and Wenner had died several days before their bodies were discovered.  Lewis had been shot multiple times and Wenner died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.


"Somebody knows something," Gina Jaschke, Lewis' aunt, told KIRO. "Somebody saw something, they might be scared to say anything. You know what? The smart one of the bunch is going to go and turn themselves in. Because no jury is going to have any sympathy for any of them."


“I want somebody to pay for what they’ve done,” she said, “And if it brings any kind of solace to my family, I’ll do it. Because they’re just devastated.”

Gina established a Go Fund Me to raise reward money for information and tips that would lead to those responsible.


This remains an active homicide investigation. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department’s Violent Crimes tip line at (206) 233-5000.
