UPDATE: Grant County Homicide Investigation

BANKS LAKE, Wash. - Sunday, May 30, 2010 at approximately 3:59 am emergency dispatch received a call advising that there had been a fight between two adult males while on a fishing trip to Banks Lake, near Coulee City, Washington. 

The report advised that just off State Route 155, three adult male friends had been fishing in that location.  Due to intoxication of the adult males (mid-40's) one challenged the other to a wrestling match.  The surviving male claimed he attempted to diffuse the other into waiting until they were more sober before the challenge continued.  According to preliminary information pushing and shoving occurred after which the wrestling match began.  Sometime during the altercation between the two, one of them stopped breathing.  The surviving adult male and the third companion called 911 and advised of what happened.

The Coulee City Marshal went to the scene and confirmed that there was an adult male who was deceased.  The scene was secured and major crimes detectives from the Grant County Sheriff's Office were notified along with the Coroner's office.

A series of interviews were conducted with the surviving male who was cooperative.  A decision was made due to the preliminary investigation of the injuries to the deceased and the surviving subject and other evidence at the scene, to release him to his family.  An autopsy will take place at the Forensic Institute of Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake on Tuesday afternoon to determine cause of death.

At this time next of kin have not been notified.  An attempt was made by a local police agency in the home town where the deceased resides without success.
