A woman was found dead in a parked truck Friday morning in downtown Spokane.
Spokane police spokeswoman Julie Humphreys said the unresponsive woman was reported around 7:45 a.m. at Second Avenue and State Street. First responders determined the woman was dead and police were called to begin a death investigation.
Humphreys said there does not appear to be a criminal element to the death but police continue to investigate. The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the woman and cause of death.
