Detectives have released the name of the woman whose body was discovered in a raging stream near a Binghamton home.
Authorities say the deceased has been identified as Debra Scott, 64, of Johnson City.
A man who lives on Bayless Avenue in Binghamton found Scott’s body as he was walking near his home around 7:50 a.m. Thursday.
The resident told WNBF News he spotted the woman’s body facing up with her arms outstretched in the air. He said his body was partially clothed and surrounded by logs.
Water in Bayless Creek, near the Binghamton town line, was flowing rapidly after two severe thunderstorms the previous afternoon and evening.
The man said the body appeared beaten, but investigators did not say whether they believed Scott had been assaulted or how long she had been dead before her body was discovered.
In a press release on Monday, detectives said an autopsy had been conducted as the cause of Scott’s death was undetermined “at this time”. It is not known if Scott had been reported missing.
Those with information can contact the Binghamton Police Detective Bureau at (607) 772-7080.
