Body pulled from canal identified as N.J. woman
LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. — Authorities on Thursday positively identified a body found in a canal as that of a New Jersey woman who went missing when she left a bar in Pennsylvania last weekend.
Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns said the body is that Sarah Majoras, 39, of Lambertville.
Kearns says the autopsy results point to a “tragic accident” and don't indicate that her death was suspicious.
He encouraged the public to contact authorities with any information that might help investigators.
“We would like any information from the public in terms of if they saw anything or heard anything that they would deem to be suspicious or significant,” he said.
Her body was found about 5 p.m. Wednesday by state police divers in the Delaware & Raritan Canal.
Majoras was last seen about 2 a.m. Saturday, when she left a bar in New Hope in Bucks County, where she worked as a bartender, and crossed over the bridge into Lambertville.
