HAMPTON - Police have identified the body of a woman found Saturday morning in the swimming pool of a local apartment complex.

Sheena Burgess, 27, of Peterborough, died as a result of drowning in the pool of the Olde English Village Apartments, 463 Winnacunnet Road, according to an autopsy performed by the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's Office.   

Burgess was staying temporarily at the apartment complex, Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan said.

At 5:50 a.m. on Saturday police responded to a call of a report of a woman found 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, he 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 non-suspicious, Sullivan said, declining further comment.
