UPDATE: Body Of Woman Found In Spokane River

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

The body of a woman was found in the Spokane River Friday afternoon in Spokane Valley. 

Officials tell KHQ's Alex Rozier that the body was spotted by some people in a boat just east of the Argonne bridge and north of E. Empire. Firefighters were called in on a water rescue response, but once on scene it was determined there was nothing they could do and the incident turned into a recovery effort. 

Details are limited right now. Detectives with the Spokane County Sheriff's Department could not immediately comment on whether the woman had any obvious signs of trauma, but they will be handling the investigation and are treating the case as a homicide at this time, which is standard procedure. 

As soon as we get any additional information, we will update this story.
