[ARCHIVED] KCSO responds to body in the Spokane River

Post Falls, ID - On 6-10-19, at around 12:20 p.m. the Kootenai County Dive Rescue Team, Kootenai County Fire and Rescue and Post Falls Police Department were dispatched to a report of a body in the Spokane River near Greensferry Bay.

Dive Team members arrived to the area by boat and recovered the victim from the water.  It appears the subject had been in the water for an extended period of time, and as a result we are unable to positively identify who the victim is or a cause of death.  Detectives from Kootenai County Sheriff and Post Falls Police have taken over the investigation. 

More information about this case will be release when information becomes available.
