ST. LOUIS (AP) – Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found floating in the Mississippi River earlier this week.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the woman was 22-year-old Mansi Flaherty of the House Springs area, south of St. Louis.
An autopsy found no evidence of a homicide but authorities have not released a cause of death and the investigation continues.
