MIDDLEFIELD — State police have identified a 36-year-old woman found dead at Wadsworth Falls State Park last week.

The body of Rachel Bisson, address unknown, was found on March 9. Foul play is not suspected, state police said Tuesday. 

State police “have no reason to believe there is any criminal aspect to this untimely death and it does appear to be an isolated incident,” Trooper First Class Christine Jeltema said.

Police are waiting for the results of an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death. 

A short time after Bisson was found, a man was located nearby. The unidentified man was taken to a hospital for evaluation and was cooperating with investigators, state police said. 

The case is being investigated by detectives from the Central District Major Crime Squad. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 860-399-2100.
