A body was pulled from the Coeur d’Alene River near Kingston Saturday night, weeks after a fisherman first reported seeing human remains in the river near Enaville.

The Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call from a resident on Fast Hill who located the body at about 8 p.m., according to a sheriff’s office news release. With the help of the resident, deputies were able to retrieve the remains.

On May 25, a fisher reported seeing what is believed to be the same body in the south fork of the river just below Enaville, deputies said.

On Thursday, human remains were discovered at a roadway construction site near Kingston. Deputies couldn’t immediately identify the remains.

Kingston is about 30 miles east of Coeur d’Alene along Interstate 90.
