Tourist boat discovers dead body

Police say there is no indication of a crime following the discovery of a missing woman’s body in Copenhagen’s canals

A female body discovered by a canal tour boat on Wednesday has been identified as a 30-year-old woman who has been missing since April 6.

“A floating body was discovered near Christiansholm,” police spokesperson Jens Kristiansen told Ritzau. “It is a woman who has clearly been in the water for some time.”

According to Copenhagen Police, the woman’s body would be autopsied today but there was no indication that a crime had taken place.

“We think it is probably a tragic case of suicide” Kristiansen told Ritzau, adding that the woman's family had been informed.

The tour boat was run by Canal Tours though Kristiansen did not know if any tourists were onboard when the body was discovered.
