BOSTON (WHDH) - A body was pulled from the Charles River in Cambridge Wednesday night after police spent the evening searching for someone who reportedly “dived” in.
Investigators started searching the waters around 8:30 p.m. after receiving reports that someone entered the water from the Anderson Bridge, but did not resurface.
According to a State Police spokesperson, witnesses said a woman had been walking across the bridge before she apparently dove into the water.
State, Boston and Cambridge police responded before a State Police Dive team recovered the body of a 32-year-old woman just after 11 p.m.
A State Police spokesperson noted there was initial confusion over whether the victim had jumped or fell in. He added that a medical examiner would determine the cause and manner of death.
The victim’s identity was not released, but 7NEWS was informed the victim was not a “permanent resident of Massachusetts.”
Suffolk County’s State Police Detective Unit was initially called in to investigate, but once is was determined the incident occurred on the Cambridge side of the river, the case was turned over to the Middlesex County’s MSP Detective Unit.
