Cops Name Three Women Found Dead At Shipyard
Police have identified three women whose bodies were recovered from a car that plunged into the water at a Rhode Island shipyard after the driver apparently missed a turn.
Officers said the victims are Louise Owen from Britain, Jennifer Way of Rhode Island, and Femmetje Staring from the Netherlands. All three were 39.
Their bodies were pulled from the car on Friday morning after it was found on its roof in four feet of water.
Police Lieutenant William Fitzgerald said the driver might have missed a turn because of the dark or the weather. A fog warning was in place at the time.
The car had fallen between six to 10 feet into the water.
Mr Fitzgerald said the car had been in the water for several hours when a fuel deliveryman spotted it.
