East Lyme — State police said they have made a tentative identification of the woman whose body was discovered Thursday floating near the shore in the area of Cini Park by the Niantic River Bridge.

State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said preliminary indications show the woman’s death does not appear to be criminal in nature. A post mortem examination is scheduled at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause and manner of death.

Vance said the woman’s identification would be released after positive identification and notification to the next of kin.

Police received a 911 from a passerby who spotted the body shortly after 6 a.m.
