HAMPTON — Police have identified the woman found Saturday morning in the swimming pool of an apartment complex.

Sheena Burgess, 27, of Peterborough, was found in the pool of the Olde English Village Apartments, Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan said Wednesday.

Burgess’ death resulted from drowning, according to an autopsy performed by the New Hampshire Medical Examiner’s Office.


Burgess was staying temporarily at the apartment complex at 463 Winnacunnet Road, Sullivan said.At 5:50 a.m. Saturday police responded to a call of a report of a woman in the complex’s pool. After arriving, police found the 27-year-old victim at the bottom of the pool, Sullivan said.

Foul play is not suspected, Sullivan said.

“At this point we know that the ruling by the medical examiner is that the death was by drowning and there is no suspicious involvement or foul play at the time,” Sullivan said.

Other than to say the death is not suspicious, Sullivan declined to comment further.
