Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating after a body was found Thursday morning on the side of the road in Airway Heights. 

Little information was offered Thursday afternoon about the circumstances or identity of the person found near North Hayford and West Balmer roads just north of Northern Quest Casino. The sheriff’s office said deputies responded at 10:10 a.m. to the report of a body in a field right off Hayford Road and that it was “possibly a homicide.”

At the scene, investigators said they were working to write search warrants and gather preliminary evidence.
