Man found dead in truck near Yakima Canyon

KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. -- A car on the side of the road with a body left inside. Kittitas County deputies found someone shot to death Friday morning.

They found the body in the back seat of the car parked near Roza Dam and the Yakima Canyon around nine.

Investigators think the victim is from Yakima.

They got a call from another driver who spotted the car off the roadway.

"And I lifted him up. I was able to move him a little bit, so I knew he hadn't been gone too long. But he had been gone long enough that I couldn't bring him back," said Kathy Tucker who saw the body.

Kittitas County's Major Crimes Unit is now handling the case.

Detectives haven't said if the person is a man or a woman. They are withholding the name until they notify the family.
