Missing Indiana Woman Drowned While Trying to Rescue Lost Dog From River Bank: Police

An Indianapolis woman and animal lover whose body was found Saturday on a river sandbar died from accidental drowning after apparently getting swept under water while chasing a lost dog, People confirms.

Authorities say they may never know exactly what happened to Jacquelyn Watts, 33, but an eyewitness reported a woman matching Watts’ description on Friday afternoon next to the Flatrock River in Columbus, where the witness said Watts was trying to catch a small white dog that had been reported missing earlier.

The Bartholomew County Coroner issued its findings Monday. The missing dog, Ringo, was found dead a day later on the river’s shore.
