Mass. police: woman’s body found in submerged car

December 11, 2013

SPENCER, Mass. (AP) — State police continue to investigate the death of a 23-year-old Spencer woman whose body was found in an overturned car in a pond.

Police say Erin Rodriques’ 2009 Subaru Outback was found at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday in the pond near Paxton Road in Spencer.

The investigation to this point suggests that Rodriques’ vehicle, for reasons still under investigation, veered off the road, crossed a small grassy area, and rolled down a slope into the water where it came to a rest upside-down.

Rodriques had been missing since Monday according to her family and a co-worker. Her family began searching for her Monday night. Family members spotted tires sticking out of the water not far from the family home.
