A woman’s body was found in a vacant lot in Spokane Valley this morning, and sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident as a possible homicide.

A citizen called authorities around 8:22 this morning to report the discovery of the body near Fifth Avenue and Custer Road, said deputy Craig Chamberlin.

The field is just south of Interstate 90 and near a pedestrian bridge that goes over the freeway. The surrounding residential neighborhood is mostly filled with single-story homes.

Authorities have not released any other identifying information about the victim.

The body has been moved to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s office and all roads have been reopened to traffic.

This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
