Body found at Spokane Waste Management Center


SPOKANE, Wash. -Spokane Police are investigating the discovery of a body at Spokane's Waste Management Center on South Geiger Boulevard. 

Just before 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon, Spokane Police responded to a call at the Waste Management Center just west of Downtown where someone on site reported finding a body inside the facility. 

Police say it's not an employee and not related to any industrial incident. 

The Smart Center, as it's known, was opened in 2012 and takes recyclables from tens of thousands of homes and businesses in Washington, Idaho and British Columbia. 

Tonight, we don't know if the body was brought to the facility or if the person died on site. Investigators also have not said whether or not they suspect foul play. 

Detectives with the Major Crimes Unites are continuing their investigation. 

It will now be up to the Spokane County Medical Examiner to release the identity of the person and how they died after the family has been notified.
