Missing Moscow man found dead

Idaho State Police today learned of a fatal crash involving a pedestrian that likely occurred in September. Joshwa C. Merriken, 36, of Moscow, was walking south on the shoulder of Highway 95 just south of Moscow wearing dark clothing and no reflective gear, according to an ISP news release. Merriken, a Lewis-Clark State college student who was walking 30 miles from Lewiston to Moscow, was last seen Sept. 30. Authorities believe he was hit that day between 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., possibly by a late 1980s or early 1990s Ford pickup with a camper. Anyone with information that could help identify the vehicle or with any other information should contact ISP at (208) 799-5150.
