    Kootenai County Sheriff's Office pulls body of Spokane woman out of Lake Coeur d'Alene; Death ruled as 'suspicious'

    "On Monday, the Kootenai County Sheriff's office was called to the Fullers Bay area at the south end of Lake Coeur d'Alene for a report of a body floating in the water.

    The dive team and detectives responded and found the body of a young woman floating near the surface. They removed the body and after an autopsy, identified her as 27-year-old Kimberly Sue Vezina of Spokane.

    Detectives say Vezina's death is suspicious and they are asking anyone who may have had contact with her to contact either Sgt. Ken Lallatin at 208-446-1337, or Detective Darrell Oyler at 208-446-1339."

    Authorities said it is not exactly clear what lead to her death. Officials are not commenting on how long it appeared Vezina had been in the water or if there were any obvious signs of trauma on her body.

    Investigators did not announce any of this until three days after her body had been found. Authorities said they were not able to identify her right away and they had to get in touch with her family.

    "We had discussed getting the information out sooner, but the detectives were unsure at that time who she was. And we're hoping to have more leads and some more investigation done," said Lt. Miller.

    Officials said her death is listed as "suspicious" because authorities do not have much in terms of answers. Investigators have not ruled out suicide. Officials said in any death, including suicide, they investigate to the fullest extent.

    The Kootenai County Coroner’s report said Vezina died of combined drug toxicity.

    Detectives with the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office said Vezina most likely died in Washington and was transported to Idaho and dumped in the lake to hide what happened. Officials said they have identified a person of interest but are not releasing any more information as of Tuesday.

    It's about 50 miles from Spokane, WA to Fuller's Bay, ID. Who was she with last?! I'm glad LE has a POI in their sights.

    RIP Kimberly.
