Authorities have identified a woman's body that was found in the Great Miami River in Hamilton on Monday.

Shelby Ryczek, 57, of Hamilton, was discovered Monday afternoon up against the east shore, close to the south low-level dam of the river.

Walkers on a trail that runs along the river noticed the body just after 4 p.m. and called police.

After an autopsy, the coroner ruled the woman's death a suicide.

A vehicle believed to have been driven by Ryczek was located in a parking area adjacent to the low level dam.
