Avista Utilities workers pulled a body from the Spokane River early Tuesday morning.
The workers discovered the body that appeared to be male at around 7 a.m. in the Lower Falls Dam near Huntington Park, just west of the Washington Water Power building on Post Street, said Sgt. Terry Preuninger, spokesman for the Spokane Police Department.
Preuninger said the body was pulled from the river in a contraption that normally catches debris before it heads over the falls.
Major Crimes detectives are investigating.
The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office has scheduled an autopsy.
