The woman whose body was recovered from the Erie Canal in Lockport on Friday has been identified as 21-year-old Casey Stover, police said.
Lockport Police said they were called to the canal near Upson Park shortly after 2 p.m. Friday. A search of the water was done with the assistance of the State Police Underwater Recovery Team, and the woman's body was found several hours later.
The Erie County Medical Examiner's Office is conducting an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Police released no information about how or where Stover, who was from Lockport, may have entered the canal.
Last Thursday Stover's mother posted a message on Facebook asking for help because her daughter had been missing since Tuesday morning.
