Update: The dead man has been identified as Paul A. Prescott, age 62 from Seattle, WA.  His next of kin has been notified.  An autopsy was performed this afternoon and results are pending.  At this time, there is nothing suspicious about the death.

A horse rider found a body on English Point Road and Lancaster while riding the English Point Trail system late Wednesday afternoon. The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department and Northern Lakes Fire and Rescue responded to the area after the rider called 911. Emergency personnel found the dead man lying face down in the middle of a trail. Detectives responded to the scene. Cause of death is still unknown, but an autopsy will be scheduled later in the week. The identity of the male is not being released pending notification of relatives/Kootenai County Sheriff's Department news release.
