Police have identified the young woman whose body was spotted floating in Clear Creek Monday by a train conductor as Jackleen Lane, 15, of Bagdad.
Shelby County Deputy Coroner Jeff Ivers said that preliminary autopsy results show the cause of death as drowning.
He added that so far, investigators think the death was accidental.
He said he has no idea yet how Lane wound up in the creek.
“They are still doing investigations and conducting interviews,” he said.
