Coroner Says Woman Did Not Drown in Canal
The Ada County Coroner has released the identity of a woman who was found dead in a canal on State street last Thursday morning.
Coroner Erwin Sonnenberg says the deceased woman is 40 year old Alexis Palmer of Boise. Family members were located and notified over the weekend.
After performing an autopsy on the body Friday, Sonnenberg now says he believes that Palmer did not drown as previously thought. Her body was likely in the canal as it began filling up with water. Sonnenberg says authorities are still looking for people who last saw Palmer alive.
The case remains under investigation.
