Remains of missing Spokane man from 2017 found in Montana

UPDATED: Mon., June 3, 2019

From staff reports

Authorities have found the remains of a Spokane man who disappeared after a 2017 car crash in Montana.

Corey Flannigan, who was 26 at the time of the crash, hit a tree in north Kalispell, Montana, in May 2017. His body was never found, but a set of footprints led away from the crash.

His remains were found last month about a half-mile from the crash site, according to KHQ, and they were in an advanced state of decomposition.

The car he was driving was reported stolen, according to an Associated Press article.

Flannigan left Otis Orchards to help a friend in Montana on May 2, 2017, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators in Montana’s Flathead County consider his disappearance suspicious.
