Arrest made in connection to Spokane woman’s death

Body found in slough; Hauser Lake man arrested after interview

A man was arrested last week in connection to the suspicious death of a Spokane woman whose body was found partially submerged in a slough in Hauser Lake, Idaho. Spokane police arrested Patrick Neil McGhee, 47, in connection to the death of Kelly Lynne Sallee, 55, who was found June 11 in a slough off the west side of Hauser Lake Road. McGhee, of Hauser Lake, was extradited to the Kootenai County Jail, where he is being held on a felony charge of failing to notify law enforcement of a death. His bond is set at $250,000. He was extradited from Spokane after being taken into custody by Spokane Police Department. Spokane and Kootenai County detectives worked together on the case. The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release it will not release details about Sallee’s death during the investigation. “Numerous items of forensic evidence have been submitted for processing and even as late as last Friday, detectives were continuing to collect and process evidence,” the release said. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact detectives at 208-446-1338, 208-446-2238 or
