TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in south-central Idaho say a woman's body found floating in the Snake River last week has yet to be identified.

Twin Falls County Coroner Dennis Chambers tells The Times-News (http://bit.ly/1tnOY6Q) in a story on Thursday that a description of the body will be put in a national unidentified victim database.

A kayaker spotted the body Sept. 9 near Centennial Waterfront Park.

The 5-foot-7, 177-pound woman with hazel eyes was dressed in black, had no identification and lacked distinguishing features such as a scar or tattoo.

Investigator Dave Benefiel of the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office says she likely jumped to her death from Perrine Bridge.

But he notes foul play is a possibility because it's unusual that no vehicle or personal property was found nearby.
