Deputies seek information on gun, ammunition used in murder

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is looking for information on a gun and ammunition believed to have been used in a Spokane Valley murder last month.

Clifford “Cory” D. Fowler was found dead in his apartment in the 12900 block of East Mansfield on Feb. 18. Fowler had been shot several times and had likely been killed several days earlier.

Investigators believe a .380 semi automatic handgun was sold by a private party within the last year in the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene area. The sale likely included ammunition from Rottweil, a German ammunition manufacturer, and the head stamp markings would have read “RWS.”

Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in Fowler’s murder. Tipsters can remain anonymous. Anyone with information is asked to call the tip line at (800) 222-TIPS or visit
