The woman's body found partially submerged in a creek in Maplewood on Saturday has been identified.

Victoria Thacker DeConwi's body was spotted about 30 yards off a trail in the Kohlman Creek Neighborhood Preserve by a passerby, Maplewood Police Chief Paul Schnell said.

Schnell said DeConwi moved from Washington to Minnesota in 2012. She has no local address and is believed to have been homeless for a while before her death, Schnell said.

She was found fully clothed with hiking boots on, Schnell said.

A final determination of the manner and cause of death is pending a toxicology test, but foul play has been ruled out, Schnell said.

Parts of the trail and preserve were blocked off while crews retrieved the woman's body.
