Woman’s body found in Spokane River

The Spokesman-Review

The body of a 42-year-old woman was pulled from the Spokane River this afternoon near Mission Park.

The woman, who was not identified, was found in the water several feet from the shore in the brush by a pedestrian walking near the Centennial Trail, Spokane Police said.

Major Crimes detectives do not believe there was foul play involved in the death, said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe, police spokeswoman

The Medical Examiner’s office will determine whether the death was accidental or a suicide, pending toxicology results. Those results will take about eight to ten weeks, officials said.
