    The body of a Fall River woman was discovered floating in a state run pool late last night, two days after she apparently drowned in that same pool......Police say lifeguards were on duty and people were swimming in the Veterans Memorial pool at Lafayette Park Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and it appears no one noticed the dead body.

    Investigators identified the body as 36-year-old Marie Joseph.

    Police say Joseph was watching her 9-year-old neighbor at the pool on Sunday when she apparently had an accident sliding down a waterside.

    Family friends tell FOX25 the little boy told lifeguards that she did not come up from above water but no action was taken.

    The Bristol County DA would not confirm if the woman’s body was in the water for two days, but did call the set of circumstances "unbelievable" and said the death is still under investigation.......The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), who runs the pool, has since closed all 30 of their deepwater pools until further notice.

    DCR has also placed the entire staff of the Veteran's Memorial Swimming Pool on administrative leave.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Fall River Mayor: Body May Have Been In Pool During Two Visits By Inspectors

    FALL RIVER (CBS) — There’s another strange twist after a woman’s body was found floating in a public pool in Fall River, possibly going unnoticed for days. The mayor of Fall River says “that health inspectors from the City visited the pool on Monday and on Tuesday and inspected the facilities,” which was during the time that body was believed to be in the water. Marie Joseph was at the pool on Sunday and hadn’t been seen since. It wasn’t until Tuesday night, when some kids broke into the Veteran’s Memorial swimming pool and found Joseph’s body floating in the...
