Body found in Coeur d’Alene River ID’d as missing Kellogg woman

UPDATED: Thu., June 14, 2018, 5:38 p.m.

Deputies in Shoshone County identified a body found in the Coeur d’Alene river as a Kellogg woman who was reported missing last month.

According to the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Department, the body of Shannon Souza, 60, was located by a resident of Fast Hill in Kingston, Idaho. Authorities were not immediately able to identify the body at the time of discovery.

Souza was reported missing on May 25 when her car, cane and dog were found at the river’s edge near the Shoshone County Airport. According to a news release, Souza was known to regularly walk her dog beside the river.

When a deputy arrived, the dog led them to her cane and the water, but they were unable to find Souza.

According to the release, almost half an hour after Souza was reported missing, a fisherman reported seeing the body of a woman floating downstream, but authorities were initially unable to locate her.
