Body found at Ash and Maxwell

Police are seeking information in the death of a woman who was apparently struck by a car and dragged for nearly a mile early Sunday morning in North Spokane.

The body of the woman, whose identity was not released pending an autopsy, was discovered near the intersection of Maxwell and Ash shortly after 4 a.m., according to the Spokane Police Department.

Police followed a trail of evidence backward to a spot near the intersection of Cedar and Carlisle, which is where police believe the woman was initially struck, Officer Glenn Bartlett said.

Roads in the area were closed in the morning while police investigated.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call (509) 242-TIPS.
