TOWN OF FISHKILL – The body found in the woods at the end of Greenwood Drive in the Beacon Hills section of Fishkill on Friday morning has been positively identified as that of a 30-year-old woman that had last been seen on December 27.  Fishkill Police Lieutenant Paul Schettino confirmed the identity to Mid-Hudson News on Friday afternoon.
After being notified of the discovery by authorities, the family asked Mid-Hudson News to refrain from publishing the name of the deceased so they can mourn privately.
Schettino told Mid-Hudson News that “The investigation is continuing but there is no evidence of foul play at this time.”
Lieutenant Schettino also noted that the cause of death will be determined by the Dutchess County Medical Examiner’s office after their investigation.  The medical examiner’s office was summoned to the scene Friday afternoon around 1:15 p.m. to take custody of the body.
The Town of Fishkill Police enlisted the help of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and the New York State Forrest Rangers at the scene of the discovery on Friday.
