The woman’s body pulled from Lake Lanier on Sunday had no signs of trauma, authorities said.

“Due to the stage of decomposition that the body was in when located has made it extremely difficult for investigators to make an identification on,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said.

Fishermen reported the body around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in the area of the Dawsonville Highway bridge on the Chattahoochee River.

Bailes said the autopsy performed Tuesday is still undetermined.

“We are working alongside the Medical Examiner to help us in obtaining any remaining viable fingerprints and dental records,” Bailes said.

The case is still under investigation.
