A former Pasco man was found dead and tied up in a blanket in a vacant house in Spokane, according to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Homeless people squatting in the house told police Parish E. Tate, 22, may have died of a drug overdose the day before he was found on Wednesday, said the Spokesman-Review.
He was found in an upstairs room wrapped in a blanket and tied with cords. Other people in the house said they found him the day before but continued to do methamphetamines and stay another night in the house, according to court documents.
The next day another man visiting the house saw Tate’s body and called police.
His death is being investigated by the Spokane Major Crimes unit.
A death notice placed by his family says he was a student and was a longtime Pasco resident before moving to Spokane four years ago.
