Human remains identified

The skeletal remains found near Henry Road in Liberty Lake Saturday by a dog walker have been identified as Greenacres resident Christopher R. Milam, 51.
Milam was reported missing by his wife on April 23. She told police they had argued the previous day and Milam walked away while she slept, according to a May press release from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office. She reported that he had been drinking and she hid all the car keys so he could not drive, the release said.
The couple had recently moved to the 19800 block of East First Court from Texas. An autopsy showed that Milam died of a single gunshot wound to the chest and police found a gun near the body. The death is still under investigation, said Liberty Lake Police Chief Brian Asmus. “We are not ruling it a suicide yet,” he said.
Investigators are still checking the gun and will be speaking with family members, Asmus said.
