An autopsy will be performed to try to determine how a West St. Louis County woman died after her body was found floating in a pond near the Reflection Cove Apartments near Ballwin.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a passerby crossing a walking bridge about 7:30 Monday morning saw the body in the pond. The woman was floating in three to five feet of water.
The woman was in her late 60s and police say she had been seen by her husband earlier in the morning. Her name hasn't been released.
Authorities are left with more questions than answers after finding a woman dead inside a car this morning.
The body was found around 6:30 this morning in St. Peters. Authorities doe not know the cause of death, but do not believe she was the victim of a homicide.
Police said they could not give any more details until an autopsy was performed.
