Spokane County Major Crimes and Traffic Unit detectives cleared the scene in the area of the 8600 block of North Weipert Drive around 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. The Medical Examiner’s Office completed the autopsy of the victim earlier in the day but the
notification of the victim’s next of kin continues. The Medical Examiner’s Office will release the name of the victim once notification has been made.
