Authorities have released the name of a deceased woman whose body was found Friday afternoon in an Annapolis park by someone walking a dog, Anne Arundel County Police said.
The body was discovered lying in a ravine behind a sediment pond at Bestgate Park and showed no obvious signs of trauma, according to the department’s Facebook page.
The woman has been identified as Diane Donati, 48, of an unknown address. Police say Donati was fully clothed and dressed appropriately for cold weather and even had a blue blanket wrapped around her. Because of the condition and location of the blue blanket, it appeared she had draped it over her shoulders in an effort to keep warm.
A forensic investigator from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner responded to assist in the investigation. Preliminary examination of the deceased revealed no outward signs of trauma or foul play. The investigation is ongoing.
Detectives are asking anyone who may have seen Donati to contact Detective Regina Collier at 410-222-3417.
