Coroner identifies woman found dead in Sacramento River

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has released the name of the woman whose body was found floating in the Sacramento River in early July.

She was identified as 33-year-old Erica M. Rodriguez. The coroner’s website did not list her place of residence.

West Sacramento firefighters were flagged down about 4:15 p.m. July 6 about a woman’s body in the middle of the river just off the Miller Park Launch ramp, according to a Sacramento Police Department activity log.

The coroner’s website said the body was 100 yards upriver from the boat ramp, near the west end of Broadway. A Sacramento Fire Department water rescue crew recovered the body.

The police log noted that coroner’s deputies did not initially notice any suspicious trauma to the body.
