Body Found in Spokane River Near 7-Mile

Posted 5/13/2014 10:34 AM by MDGREGORY

On May 12th, 2014, at about 18:40 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a body found in the Spokane River near the 8000 block of North Rivermere Avenue.

Members of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Emergency Operation’s Team arrived and recovered the body of a male which appears to have been in the water for quite some time.

The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office will attempt to determine the cause/manner of death as well as an identity of the man during an autopsy which will be completed at a later time.

Because this is an unattended death and it is unknown if foul play is involved, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Major Crime Detectives will work with the Medical Examiner’s Office and provide assistance if needed.

No further information is available at this time.
