22-Year-Old Sacramento Woman's Body Found In Pennsylvania Creek; Death Called 'Suspicious'

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says the drowning death of a California woman in a central Pennsylvania creek is suspicious.

Cumberland County Coroner Charles Hall says 22-year-old Fiona Koell's body was bruised and toxicology tests to determine if she was under the influence of any drugs or alcohol are pending.

The Sacramento woman's body was found in the creek Saturday evening by a man fishing, though Hall says the body could have been there since Friday night.

Hall and Middlesex Township police say they're still trying to determine how and why the woman wound up in the creek.

Koell didn't have a vehicle near the scene and her family has told investigators she was traveling to see friends in Virginia when she was last seen. The coroner says he doesn't know how Koell was traveling.
