SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police are identifying a woman who apparently drowned after a riverbank collapsed while she was fishing Saturday.
Leona Jean Rowley, a 37-year-old Vernal resident, was with her husband in the Horseshoe Bend area of the Green River.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1vHGsz6) he moved about 100 yards away, and when he returned he found the bank collapsed and his wife gone.
Crews found her body in the river Sunday evening about a quarter-mile from where she was last seen. Medical examiners are determining the exact cause of death, but investigators found no signs of foul play.
