BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (WLNE) — Burrillville police on Tuesday identified the woman who was found dead in a pond over the weekend.

Police said Jane Finkelstein’s body was recovered Sunday from Little Round Top Pond — a fishing and hiking site near Brook Road in the Harrisville section of Burrillville.

Col. Stephen Lynch said no evidence of foul play was found with Finkelstein’s death.

Lynch said Finkelstein, who’s 67 years old, was an “avid outdoor enthusiast and was known to hike in this area frequently.”

Police said the Harrisville woman’s body was discovered about 20 feet from the shore, partially submerged in water and on broken ice.

Lynch said it’s believed that the 67-year-old fell through the ice at some point Saturday.

Finkelstein was a child psychologist and had an office and practice in Massachusetts, said police.

No further information was immediately released.
