Autopsy shows Davenport woman drowned in river

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A preliminary ruling on the death of a 29-year-old Davenport woman is that she drowned.

The body of Jennifer Cooney was pulled from the Mississippi River on Friday morning, about 200 yards downstream from the Crescent Bridge.

Davenport Assistant Police Chief Don Schaeffer says the death was either an accident or a suicide because no visible signs of other injuries were found during an autopsy.

The Quad-City Times says (http://bit.ly/1bF85jq ) the death investigation is continuing.
