Video reviewed after body found in Mass.-run pool
FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Police are looking over surveillance video and state officials have ordered an internal investigation as authorities try to determine how a body wound up in a public pool in Massachusetts and how long it was there.
Fall River Mayor William Flanagan said Thursday that police are reviewing video from the pool for clues in the death of 36-year-old Marie Joseph. Officials are investigating the possibility that Joseph's body was at the bottom of the pool for more than two days while other people swam.
A 9-year-old boy whom Joseph was watching has told police she slipped on a water slide Sunday and went under. Her body was discovered Tuesday night.
Gov. Deval Patrick has ordered an investigation of the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Two city health inspectors have been placed on leave.
