Spokane Police have identified the body found Monday on Spokane's South Hill as 40-year-old Michael Giannotti. An autopsy showed no signs of traumatic injuries that would explain his death.

Police do not believe Giannotti drove himself to the corner of Sixth Av & Jefferson St, where he was found in his 1995 white Nissan Pathfinder/KREM2. More here
