Do You Recognize Her? Still No Identification For Woman Found Dead In River

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. – It’s been almost two weeks since a dive team pulled the body of a woman out of the Spokane River; and investigators are still working to determine who she is.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office got the report of a body found in the river around 4pm on January 10th in the 10500 block of East Empire. Her description has been compared with local and national databases for missing people, but so far, no match.

That’s why a new rendering was released by the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s office Wednesday, based on autopsy photos. Washington law allows for such photos to be released with other forms of identification are not successful.

The woman is described as white or Native American, about 5’2” and 140 pounds with brown eyes and shoulder-length dark hair. She was found wearing a green button-front sweater and black sweatpants with a red waistband.

So far, investigators don’t know where she may be from, how long she’d been in the water, or even a cause of death. That is still pending based on further examination and tests.

If you recognize this woman, call police.
