The Sacramento County Coroner identified the victim as 44-year-old Andrea Williams, city of residence unknown.

California State Parks Folsom Sector Superintendent Rich Preston said when Williams was found she was face-down, fully clothed with no identification.

Bates said there is no indication of foul play, and the incident is currently under investigation.
