Police hope man seen on surveillance may have info on Spokane man’s disappearance
SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Police are looking for a man that had contact with Richard Coffee on the day he was last seen alive.
Coffee’s body was found in the Spokane River in early June, several days after he went missing.
Police said Coffee was last seen alive at the Wal-Mart on N. Cotton on May 11. At that time, surveillance video of the Wal-Mart parking lot showed he spoke with a man who arrived in a pickup truck.
Police said there was a verbal exchange between Coffee and the man over the headlights of the truck shining on Coffee.
The man captured in the footage is not a suspect or a person of interest in the case. However, police said there is a chance he could shed light on Coffee’s original disappearance.
Authorities would like the public’s help locating this man and would appreciate any information that could lead to details about Coffee’s death.
