GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Gulfport have identified a woman whose body was found last month on the bank of Bayou Bernard.

Local news agencies report that officials say 36-year-old Priscilla Earl’s body was discovered by fishermen near the Kremer’s Landing boat launch on Sept. 27.

Investigators aren’t sure how she ended up there, and say she was not reported missing before she was found. Earl was identified through DNA and her tattoos.

Foul play has not been ruled out in her death, and the investigation remains ongoing.
