EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- The death toll from the landslide that hit the Washington town of Oso has risen to 33.

The Snohomish County medical examiner's office says it has received three more victims than previously reported. Of those, 30 have been identified.

The latest name is 30-year-old Billy L. Spillers of Arlington. Like the others, he died of multiple blunt force injuries in the March 22 slide that crushed a residential area along the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
