LONG ISLAND, NY (TIP): An Indian American woman was found dead in Long Island, New York over the weekend, the victim of an apparent drowning that happened in a backyard swimming pool. The woman was identified as Rajkumari Motwani, a 55 year-old resident of Rego Park, Queens. According to Newsday, Motwani drowned during a party that was being held at a home in Dix Hills on Saturday, July 12 and residents of the house called police around 2:39 PM the following day when they went outside to clean up and noticed Motwani’s body floating motionless in the water.

First responders pronounced the woman dead at the scene, with police telling local media that partygoers were cooperative with the investigation. The prevailing theory seems to be that the woman went swimming when it was dark outside – the party ended around 11:30 PM, according to reports – and since the pool had no lights, that somehow contributed to her death.

The investigation is still ongoing, and police have not commented publicly on any firm leads, however. Because the investigation – currently being carried out by the Suffolk County Police Department – is still ongoing, investigators are urging anyone with information regarding the drowning to come forward. Those who may be able to assist the police are encouraged to call 631-852-6000.
