Unidentified Woman Will Be Laid to Rest Next Tuesday

Nearly a month after her body was pulled from the Snake River between the Perrine Bridge and the Centennial Park boat ramp, the woman remains unidentified but will be buried in a Twin Falls cemetery next week.

It was the afternoon of Sept. 9 that the woman's body was pulled from the water. Officials said the body had not been in the water long. 

Police said the woman was 45-50 years old, five foot, seven inches tall; 177 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Her fingerprints have been run through a nationwide database. She was dressed in black clothing, but no identification was found. Officials theorized that she jumped from the Perrine Bridge.

And now, this morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that the woman will be buried 11 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 7 at Sunset Memorial Park in Twin Falls. A small graveside service will be held.

"If somebody wanted to come and pay their last respects, I'd have no problem with that," Twin Falls County Coroner Dennis Chamber told the Times-News, adding that the unofficial rule among coroners was to burry unidentified remains rather than cremation. "You don't know what the family's request would be."
