Spokane Police Department recovered a body Tuesday morning from the Spokane River and have matched the body with the description of a missing person.

The department confirmed that the clothes on the body matched a description for Veteran Affairs hospital surgeon, Dr. John Marshall, who was reported missing yesterday after not showing up to work.

SPD received a call reporting the body this morning at 9 a.m. on the north bank of the Spokane River, west of the Monroe Street Bridge.

SPD detectives are investigating it as “a suspicious death,” according to a release sent out by the SPD just after 11 a.m.

Confirmation on the identity of the body and the cause of death will be determined from the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office at a later date, according to the release.

Marshall reportedly left the Y.M.C.A. yesterday Jan. 25 at 5 a.m., to go on a jog. He was not seen after that. Staff at the Spokane V.A. hospital reported Marshall missing yesterday morning after he did not show up to work.

Freshman Jordan Lach, who lives in the Red Lion River Inn, was returning from the Rudolph Fitness Center with his roommate around 11 p.m. last night, when he ran into a woman, who he said was searching for Marshall.

The woman, who Lach described as middle-aged with dark hair was holding a flashlight, was searching along the banks of the Spokane River on the north side of the Centennial Trail close to campus, with another man and his dog, according to Lach.

Lach and his roommate, freshman Nick Watson, notified their Residence Assistants upon return to the River Inn.

This is the third body within the last year, and fourth within the last two years found in the downtown stretch of the Spokane River.

In Feb. 2015, a man who died of hypothermia and drowning was found near the Avista Dam. In October, a body was discovered by paddle boarders in the river near Trent Avenue and Hamilton Street, and in Jan. 2014 a deceased woman was found in the river near E Empire Avenue.

Here is this morning and yesterday’s full press release from the SPD’s Public Information Officer Teresa Fuller:

Today, Jan. 26:

Spokane Police Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a suspicious death after a body was found along the banks of the Spokane River just west of the Monroe Street Bridge this morning. The clothing description provided to police for missing male, Dr. John Marshall, matches the clothing on the decedent, however, positive identification of the body will come from the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Just before 9:00am this morning, Jan. 26, 2016, the Spokane Police Division received a call reporting a body in the water on the north bank of the Spokane River just west of Monroe Street Bridge. Officers and Major Crimes Detectives responded with water rescue crews from Spokane Fire Department. Detectives recognized the clothing description as that provided to police when Marshall was reported missing yesterday.

At this time, Major Crimes Detectives are treating this as a suspicious death. Specific cause of death and positive identification of the body will come from the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Yesterday, Jan. 25:

The Spokane Police Department is asking for the public’s help locating a missing adult male. John Marshall (49) was reported missing after not reporting for work at Spokane’s VA Hospital this morning. Staff at the VA Hospital notified his family when he did not show up for work which is very out of character for him.

The Spokane Police Department was contacted after it was determined Marshall’s last known location was the YMCA in the 1100 block of north Monroe. Marshall left the YMCA just after 5:00am this morning, Jan. 25, 2016, to go for a jog and it does not appear he ever returned.

He is described as a white male, 5’6”, 150lbs, blue eyes, brown hair, last seen wearing a brown coat, green T-shirt with a “We Are Marshall” logo, and navy blue “Spokane Shadow” soccer shorts.

The Spokane Police Department is going over his known jogging routes.
