- Picture: A candle is lit at a memorial service remembering 114 homeless or recently homeless people who passed away in 2003. The service, organized by the Compass Center, took place in Pioneer Square on January 2. Two homeless people joined the dead in the waning days of 2003: the body of Marlowe Sparks was found at a Ballard bus stop on December 29, 2003; and John Mansfield died December 31, 2003 in the alley behind the Uptown Cinema in Lower Queen Anne. At press time, amid cold weather and snow, the body of a woman presumed homeless was found on Capitol Hill. County medical examiners are still looking for the cause of their deaths.
