Workers use hand tools next to heavy equipment at the scene of a deadly mudslide nearly two weeks earlier nearby, Thursday, April 3, 2014, in Oso, Wash.

The Snohomish County medical examiner's office has now identified all 36 victims it has received from the Oso mudslide.

The office on Friday added the name of 14-year-old Denver Harris of Arlington, who was killed by blunt force injuries. The boy had been on the missing list.

Three weeks after the March 22 slide, seven people remain missing and a search continues in the debris.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee visited the area Friday, spending time with school children and first responders.

A computer simulation by the U. S. Geological Survey shows the landslide moved with surprising speed across the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River and buried the residential area as it spread out in the valley.
