Body Found In Spokane In SUV w/KootCo Plates

Spokane police are investigating a possible homicide after a group of teens walking home from McDonald’s found a body in a sport utility vehicle Monday about a block from their Jefferson Street apartment. The body was in the backseat of a white Nissan Pathfinder with a Kootenai County, Idaho, license plate parked at the corner of 6th Avenue and Jefferson Street. Major Crimes Unit detectives were still investigating the scene as of press time and had released no details. Kayla Snow, 18, and her friends saw the body as they were walking home from lunch about 5 p.m. It appeared to be male with burn marks on his hands, Snow said. “There were flies everywhere on the Pathfinder,” Snow said. “Another girl was with me and she started puking.” Neighbors at the scene Monday night said the vehicle had been there at least two or three days.
