OTHELLO, Wash. — Authorities say more than one body was found in an abandoned vehicle in Eastern Washington near Othello.

The Tri-City Herald reports Adams County Sheriff's deputies were called at 6:30 a.m. Thursday to investigate a suspicious car with what appeared to be blood on the hood. Deputies found a person dead inside the vehicle.
