CASPER — Authorities have released the name of a woman whose body was recovered from the North Platte River in Casper.
Police Sgt. Deahn Amend tells The Casper Star-Tribune that firefighters spotted Bobbie Stringham’s body about two feet under water at about 3 p.m. Sunday.
Authorities say a caller reported someone yelling for help behind homes on North Center Street at about 5 a.m. Jan. 19.
When police and firefighters arrived, the woman was in the water clinging to ice. She lost her grip and disappeared under the ice before rescuers could reach her.
The Natrona County Coroner’s Office will conduct the autopsy.
