Deputy discovers deceased woman during Mullen Hill Terrace welfare check

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane County Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a woman at the Mullen Hill Terrace park in south Spokane County.

A deputy discovered the woman at a residence in the mobile home park while conducting a welfare check early Friday afternoon.

Spokane County Sheriff's Sergeant Bill Beeman said the woman has facial injuries but deputies have not pinpointed a cause of death. There are no signs of a struggle on the front porch of the home where she was found.

Major Crimes detectives, who are already investigating a body found in Spokane Valley Thursday night, have not arrived on the scene yet. When they do they'll request a search warrant in order to investigate the residence and start working to determine how the woman died and whether foul play was involved in her death.
