STAMFORD -

Police have identified the body of a woman who was found floating in a river near the Trump building in Stamford.

Police say Eru Zhang, 67, was found dead Sunday before 1 p.m. floating in the Rippowam River inside Mill River Park off Broad Street.

Emergency responders recovered Zhang's body in the river underneath an overpass near Trump Parc.

Officials believe Zhang entered the water near her home on Vernon Place and are not suspecting foul play. 

However, they say a state medical examiner will determine her exact cause of death during an autopsy.
