Body Identified

The female corpse found on the oceanfront at Beach 28 Street on May 21 has been identified by the city's chief medical examiner as the body of Sirikatha Peiris, 64, of 88-45 213 Street in Jamaica. Police sources say that Peiris drowned, but that they do not believe that there was any criminality involved in her death. A spokesperson for the medical examiner's office told The Wave this week that the case is still pending further action to ascertain whether it was an accident or a case of suicide by drowning.
