Body found near climbing rocks identified


The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the body found Wednesday near the climbing rocks on East Upriver Drive as 50-year-old Lee F. Finkbonner.

The cause of death is still under investigation, according to a news release.

Hikers discovered Finkbonner’s body Wednesday afternoon near the cliffs around Upriver Dam.

Major crimes detectives were at the scene, though a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said that’s routine for an unattended death.
