The later investigation into her death will take this story into the category of Crime for sure.

Interesting case. Body must have been kept frozen for the piercing to be able to hold on to the belly button. Must've been dumped into the river recently. Still, sad that no one had reported her missing.

agreed. Even after a couple of days need to go to dental records, since age/sex are unrecognizable. three months in the water? i doubt it.
