A hiker on Tubbs Hill in Coeur d’Alene stumbled across a grisly find Sunday: the body of a woman on a trail in the popular recreation area.

The woman, who has not yet been identified, apparently was on a trail on the back side of Tubbs Hill, which can be accessed from the 10th Street entrance, authorities said. A gun was found at the scene, and police believe it was a suicide, said Lt. Rob Turner of the Coeur d’Alene Police Department.

“We’re not going to rule out anything until we know for sure,” Turner said.

Police were contacted by the hiker about 2 p.m.
