Law enforcement officials do not suspect foul play at this time. Mezzenga lives alone, and nobody witnessed her death.

Her body was brought to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy, and authorities said Mezzenga’s probable cause of death is freshwater drowning.

Investigators have processed the scene for evidence, and the Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Crosslake Police and Fire departments.
