The body of a Lewiston woman found dead on Beachview Hill Friday morning has been identified as Ina C. Richardson, 69.

Clarkston Police Chief Joel Hastings said foul play "can't be ruled out right now" and encouraged pedestrians to be vigilant when they're out walking, especially after dark.

Richardson's body was discovered by a passer-by around 6:10 a.m. Friday on the ground between Beachview Park and Chestnut Beach in Clarkston.

Richardson was last seen Thursday between 5:15 and 5:30 p.m. on foot in the downtown Lewiston area. Police are asking anyone with any information to contact the department at (509) 758-1680 or Whitcom dispatch at (509) 758-2331.
