Deputies investigating death of couple in Spokane Valley apartment
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — Spokane Valley deputies are investigating the death of a couple at an apartment complex Saturday evening.
Authorities say family members had arrived at the apartment near Skyview and Clinton around 9 p.m. on Saturday, but were unable to enter. They told deputies they could see into the apartment and saw a woman on the floor unconscious.
While first responders were on their way, the family members forced the door open.
The couple inside—a man and a woman—were both dead. Detectives and the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office are working to determine the cause of their deaths, and the Sheriff’s Office is getting a search warrant to reenter the apartment and collect evidence.
The man and woman have not yet been identified.
