Body of Mother of 4 Found in Spokane River

Divers pulled the body of a 28-year-old mother of four from the Spokane River near Post Falls on Thursday afternoon. The woman’s husband reported her missing Monday night after she called him and said she was going to commit suicide, Kootenai County Sheriff’s Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. Her vehicle was later found at Falls Park in Post Falls and clothing and other items belonging to the woman were found at the Avista Bridge downstream from the Post Falls dam.
Divers searched the river on Tuesday and resumed the search around noon Thursday. Avista Utilities closed the north channel of the dam Thursday so divers could enter the water, Wolfinger said.
