Homicide victim's funeral set for Friday

A memorial service for the man found dead under the Sunset Bridge is scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m.

Family and friends of William P. "Bill" Pickard, 38, will gather at the Family Faith Community Church, 708 W. Nora, for a service, then at Linwood Park, 7720 N Country Homes Blvd., for a potluck.

Spokane police detectives continue to search for clues on Pickard's death, which was ruled a homicide after his body was found under the bridge last Wednesday. His car was found in the 1500 block of West Glass Avenue the next day. He told his family he was going to a bar Tuesday, but staff said he never showed up.

Pickard was a few classes away from earning his chemical dependency counselor degree at Spokane Falls Community College.

He graduated from North Central High School in 1990, where he helped lead the wrestling team to a league championship.

Anyone with information on his death should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
