Lambertville Body Confirmed As Sarah Majoras
The body pulled out of the Delaware & Raritan Canal in Lambertville yesterday has been positively identified as that of Sarah Majoras.
The Hunterdon County Medical Examiner's preliminary results indicate that her death was a "tragic accident." Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III said, "At this point in the investigation, there is no indication of foul play. All of Sarah’s personal property, including cash, identification, wallet, keys, and flashlight were in her possession." A cause of death has yet to be determined.
The 39-year-old's body was found in the D+R Canal near the lock south of Bridge Street. She was last seen on surveillance camera walking the free bridge from New Hope into Lambertville and crossing Lambert Lane.
Kearns also thanked Majoras' friends and the community for organizing ground searches of the area. " They were very organized and helpful. I commend this dedicated group for their teamwork and perseverance," he said.
Maroras' mother Judy used the Find Sarah Majoras Facebook page to thank the volunteers as well. "It's comforting to know that she was so cared for," she wrote.
The page has set up a donation page to be used for a memorial fund "and/or reward." Some on the Facebook page have suggested using the funds to install a railing or fencing on the tow path along the canal and additional surveillance cameras in Lambertville.
