Some walkers discovered a body Thursday night in a wooded area near a Spokane Valley apartment complex. The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.


The people who discovered the body said they were walking their dog at about 10 p.m. near the Mirabeau Apartments off of Trent Avenue and North Pines Street.  They said they smelled something funny and discovered the body of a black man, who appeared to be in his 30s.

The cause of the death was not immediately clear.

People who live in the nearby apartments said the body was found in an area with lots of trails where residents frequently walk their dogs.
