Police investigating after body discovered at Fish Lake

July 15, 2022 Updated Fri., July 15, 2022 at 9:09 p.m.

The Spokane Police Department is investigating after a body was discovered at the Fish Lake trailhead on Thursday evening.

Police responded to a call about a body at the trailhead at about 6:45 p.m., police spokeswoman Julie Humphreys said. It was discovered in the brush, away from the main trail where most people bike or walk, she said.

The police department’s major crimes unit was also on the scene. Police have not determined whether foul play was involved, Humphreys said.

Details about the deceased person’s identity have not been released.

The investigation is ongoing.
