LAKE STEVENS — A woman’s body was found in the water at Lake Stevens on Wednesday afternoon.

The woman was discovered about 3 p.m., face down in the water near the shore at Sunset Cove Park, said Shari Ireton, a spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

“At this time, there does not appear to be any evidence of foul play nor does the death appear to be suspicious,” Ireton said in a press release. She also stressed that the cause and manner of death, as well as the woman’s identification, would be pending examination by the medical examiner.

Crews were at the lakeshore Wednesday afternoon recovering the body, Ireton said.
