The woman found dead in a pond late last week has been identified as a missing woman from Vero Beach.

The Indian River County Sheriff's Office does not suspect foul play in the death of 55-year-old Nancy Browne.

Investigators believe she drowned in the pond at a fish farm in Vero Beach last Thursday, a day after her mother reported her missing.

It's the second body to be pulled from a pond at Paramount Farms. Last Monday, deputies recovered the body of 76-year-old Thomas Hare.

The autopsies to determine an official cause of death on both should take several weeks, the sheriff's office said.
