A photo Sunday of Nick Ader, his wife Tracy and their two sons is the centerpiece to a growing memorial to the murdered members of the family at the intersection of Heroy Avenue and Whitehouse Street.

“A woman at the vigil contacted an officer. She told him that the car we were looking for was behind the Zip Trip. We rushed immediately over here and sure enough it was here,” Nemec said.

The body of Dustin Gilman is placed in the medical examiner’s van after it was discovered on property along the Little Spokane River on Monday, Feb. 13, 2012. “He was found on a high cliff, making extraction difficult,” a news release posted on the police department’s Facebook page said. Gilman, 22, is suspected of killing a Spokane woman and her two young sons Friday night. He had been staying with the family.
