RCMP say a body found in the Aroostook River near the border in New Brunswick was that of a 30-year-old woman who lived in Caribou, Maine.


The body was recovered from the river on Sunday near the Tinker Dam, less than a mile from the U.S. border.

The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Christine Hart-Carmichael of Caribou, according a press release Friday from Sgt. Don Daigle of the West District RCMP.

Police said the body was discovered around 10:30 Sunday morning. There were no personal belongings or I.D. with the body.  RCMP forensic identification experts assisted with the investigation. An autopsy was performed Monday.

The investigation into Hart's death has now been turned over to the Maine State Police.
