According to The Advocate, the body of the woman pulled from Lake Ponchartrain on Tuesday has been identified as 32-year-old Sadie Thibodeaux.

Thibodeaux was reported missing on Monday morning after a 34-foot sailboat was found drifting in the lake without its occupants. The U.S. Coast Guard initiated a search of the lake on Sunday evening and rescued one of the boat’s occupants from the lake on Monday morning. That man was identified as 43-year-old Michael Lee Farley.

In a press conference on Tuesday, the New Orleans Police Department says they questioned Farley but that there is no evidence of foul play in the case. The NOPD has not released any more details on the investigation.

The cause of death for Thibodeaux is still under investigation, according to The Advocate.
