A body found at the Waste Management Recycle Center last week has been identified as 79-year-old Stephanie A. Standen, according to the Spokane Medical Examiner.
Spokane police said Standen’s body was transported to the recycling facility on Geiger Boulevard by a garbage truck.
The cause of death remains under investigation.
Citing court documents, KHQ reported Tuesday that the woman had injuries to her body and head when she was found dead on the recycle facility’s conveyer belt.
Police retraced the truck’s route to the home of a missing woman, KHQ reported, and have requested a search warrant to look at the cellphones of Standen and her male roommate.
