Washington’s Lady Of The Lake

Continuing our State Legends Series, this week we focus on Lake Crescent’s Lady Of The Lake. 
On July 6, 1940, the body of Hallie Illingworth was recovered by two fishermen on Lake Crescent. Her body had become the consistency of soap, preserving much of the evidence that showed she was murdered. The real mystery still remains: Was it accidental? A Crime of passion? Or had it been premeditated? Listen to the story and decide.
