Mead schools delayed after dead person found on Farwell Road Tuesday morning


An ambulance crew found a dead person in the road near Northwood Middle School early Tuesday morning, leading to a two-hour delay in the Mead School District.

The AMR Ambulance Crew found the body just after 3:30 a.m. on Farwell Road east of Pittsburg Street, according to a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office statement.

I planned to turn onto Farwell this morning on the way into work to go get some gas at the local Fred Meyers and was surprised to find it completely coned off with a police car overseeing the roadblock. You don't expect someone to drop dead in the middle of a suburban neighborhood during the early morning hours so hopefully more information will be forthcoming soon.
