NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) - The medical examiner's office will determine an exact cause of death after a woman's body was found floating in a New Port Richey canal.
A Pasco County Sheriff's Office statement identifies the woman as 76-year-old Vickie Petrakis. Her husband found her body Monday morning. Authorities say there were no signs of foul play.
A preliminary investigation shows a friend called the husband, telling him their car was parked in the area. Authorities say that when the husband arrived, he searched the area and found his wife floating in the canal.
