COLFAX, Wash. -- A 23-year-old man was found dead early Friday morning at Granite Pointe on the Whitman County side of the Snake River. 

The Whitman County Sheriff's Office responded to the area around 2 a.m. and spoke to three people who were with the victim that day.

During an investigation police determined Andrew Duke, 23, walked away from the people he was with and was later found by them at the bottom of a 50 foot cliff. The group called 911 to report the accident.

Duke was pronounced dead at the scene. The injuries appeared to be from a fall.

Alcohol is believed to be involved.

The investigation is ongoing.
