Officials identify woman found dead at Kiwanis Park
Police recovered a woman's body from a Kiwanis Park pond in Yakima on Monday.

The woman found dead in a pond at Kiwanis Park has been identified as 45-year-old Kristina Burger, the Yakima County Coroner’s Office confirms.

An autopsy Wednesday morning revealed that she drowned as her body showed no signs of trauma, according to county Coroner Jack Hawkins.

He said the body was likely in the water about two to four days before being pulled out on Monday.

Yakima police spokesman Mike Bastinelli said Burger was considered a transient.
