Body Found in West Milford Lake Identified

Authorities say a body found in a car in a northern New Jersey lake is that of a woman missing for more than five years.

Cathy DeBono (NJ State Police)

An autopsy has identified 49-year-old Cathy DeBono of Oakland, who was last seen in her 2004 Toyota Camry on March 23, 2008. A cause of death has not been released.

Divers from the West Milford police department on training exercises discovered the car Wednesday in the Monksville Reservoir, part of Long Pond Ironworks State Park in West Milford.

The Camry was found upside down in approximately 18 feet of water, about 30 yards from a boat ramp.

The autopsy results were released Friday by the Department of Environmental Protection, which is working with the Passaic County prosecutor’s office and Northern Regional Medical Examiner’s Office.
