    Neighbors say in the past, they have seen transients in the area. Investigators say the body could be a transient. The person could have died of natural causes but they do not know yet.

    "At this point, we can't rule out a crime so therefore we are investigating it to rule out any sort of foul play," said Spokane Major Crimes Sergeant Mark Griffiths.
