SULTAN — Searchers found and recovered the body of a Monroe woman Saturday, nine days after she fell over a waterfall at Cedar Ponds Lake.
Heavy rain and rising waters stalled efforts to find her.
A team of volunteers led by the sheriff’s office returned to the falls Saturday, to resume the search. One of Weitlauf’s friends found the body around noon in a tangle of logs, branches and debris.
It took hours to carry the body from the water, and hours to bring her out of a canyon and to the road.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
