The body of a young woman was found floating in a pond in Carnon, a town on the Hérault coast, located about ten kilometers from Montpellier.

It was discovered by a walker on Wednesday morning.

The gendarmes immediately cordoned off the area.

The young woman, in sportswear, has not yet been identified.

No identity papers were found on or near her.

No notice of disappearance has been issued.

No sign of apparent violence

An autopsy performed on Thursday should determine the causes of his death.

The body shows no signs of violence and the state of preservation of the body suggests that she had not been submerged in water for a long time.
