WILTON - Wilton police have reported the death of the female kayaker pulled from the Norwalk River yesterday, while crews have resumed their search for a second person.
Police say two witnesses found the woman, 50-year-old Doreen Wallace, floating in the river near the Cannondale train station shortly after 6 p.m. Friday. They recovered Wallace from the water, and she later died at Norwalk Hospital.
She and a man, believed to be 46-year-old James Lind, were seen about 45 minutes earlier in a two-person kayak.
Police say the couple shared a house on Cannon Road in Wilton, just upstream from where Wallace's body and the kayak were retrieved.
Police say they do not suspect foul play.
