Death Investigation Southwest Spokane County
Spokane County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the death of an adult female in Southwest Spokane County.
On September 21, 2017, at approximately 10:50 p.m., a male called 911 to report his friend was drunk, passed out, and was now unresponsive. When the deputy arrived, he observed the male caller attempting to provide CPR to the female, outside on the back porch of the residence.
