Help sought identifying woman’s body found in canal

By Meghann M. Cuniff Staff writer

A woman’s body was found in a canal outside Quincy, Wash., last week, and the Grant County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help identifying her.

An autopsy Tuesday concluded the woman was 5-foot-1 and 35 to 50 years old, according to a news release.

She had tattoos on the right forearm and left hand, the Grant County Coroner’s Office said.

The body was found in an irrigation canal last Thursday.

“Due to the fluctuating environmental temperatures it could not be determined how long the body had been in the water,” the news release said. “Preliminary autopsy findings are consistent with drowning. However, cause and manner of death will remain pending until the investigation is complete.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kim Cook with the Sheriff’s Office at (509) 754-2011, ext. 468.
