CLARKS SUMMIT, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in northeastern Pennsylvania plan a forensic examination of the remains of a woman’s body discovered in a private pond.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reported Sunday (https://bit.ly/1nAU8ro ) that the property owner found the partially decomposed body Saturday afternoon.

A chief deputy coroner tells the paper the woman was fully clothed and showed no obvious signs of trauma.

The official says it’s difficult to tell her age, and she may have died months ago.

He says the property owner was doing some landscaping and yard work when he noticed something unusual in the pond.
