UPDATE: Mother Found Dead In Spokane Valley Home

UPDATE: An autopsy has been completed in the suspicious death investigation initiated on South Fawn Friday morning. The cause of death was not determined and the matter remains an open investigation.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: A welfare check turned into a suspicious death investigation after officers found a deceased woman in a Spokane Valley residence.

Officers went to the home in the 2100 block of South Fawn after receiving a call from the victim's boyfriend. He told Crime Check that the 29-year-old woman had not shown up to work Friday and wasn't answering her cell phone.

Officers arrived to find the victim's one-year-old son and five-year-old daughter looking out the front window of the duplex residence. They asked the girl to get her mother, but the girl returned and said her mom wouldn't wake up.

Although officers didn't see any evidence that would suggest a cause of death, they noted some circumstances inside the home that raised suspicion. A check with the victim's family and acquaintances revealed she had no significant known medical problems.

 A female roommate reportedly was driving east for a weekend visit to Glacier Park.

The children were released to their natural father.  Sheriff's major crimes detectives arrived to conduct a more intensive death investigation. A representative of the Medical Examiner's Office arrived shortly after 8 p.m. Friday and affirmed that cause of death would not be known until after autopsy.

The victim's identity will be released by the Spokane County Medical Examiner, most likely after the autopsy is completed.

>>>Anyone with information regarding the death is encouraged to contact detectives by calling Crime Check at 456-2233.

PREVIOUS STORY:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A woman in her mid 20's has been found dead in a Spokane Valley home at 2100 S. Fawn St. We're told the woman is a mother. It all started just after 11 a.m. on Friday morning when the boyfriend of the woman called police to request a welfare check.

When the police arrived at the home they found the woman dead with her two kids inside the house as well. Her five-year-old girl and one-year-old boy are ok at this time. Authorities report that the kids are with their father as of Friday night. There's still no word on the woman's identity.

When Spokane Valley Police entered the home they felt there was enough suspicious material to request a search warrant. So just before noon they requested a warrant, but it wasn't issued until after 5PM.

Sergeant Dave Reagan with the Spokane County Sheriff's Department said it appears this woman lived a fairly healthy life, and went on to say everyone knows it surely is not normal for a woman to be dead before 30.

Reagan said the department does not have any suspects at this time because he doesn't know if there's a crime just yet.

The investigation continues, look for updates here on KHQ.com, Facebook, and our Twitter news feed.
