Woman Found Dead in Rock Creek, Feb. 18
A body of a female was found Saturday morning, Feb. 18, in the waters where the C&O Canal, Rock Creek and the Potomac River meet alongside the House of Sweden—where walkers, runners and rowers were out and about—near Thompson Boathouse.
The D.C. Fire & EMS Dept. had first responded to a call the night before of a person in the canal but found no one. The Metropolitan Police Dept. is investigating. As of now, no identity or cause of death has been released, nor how the woman ended up in the canal.
