Spokane Police investigating after man found dead in car

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Police detectives are investigating the death of a man found in a car in Spokane.

Officer Ben Maplethorpe tells The Spokesman-Review a resident reported the death Sunday afternoon, and major-crimes detectives were dispatched to the scene on South Hill. Investigators don’t believe the public is at risk.

Officials have yet to release the man’s name or age, or cite a possible cause of death.

Maplethorpe says it doesn’t appear the car had been in the area for long.
