The body of a woman found in a Honolulu canal has been identified as a Minnesotan.
The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office identified the woman as Shannon Bartholomew, 51, of Minneapolis. Police say her body was found Monday in the Ala Wai Canal around 7:20 a.m.
Detectives have ruled her death suspicious, saying her body was "bound" and "surrounded by suspicious circumstances," according to the Associated Press.
Brigette Namata of KHON reports that witnesses said Bartholomew was bound with handcuffs.
The Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii informed the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Bartholomew's body was found at the end of an 18-day solo vacation to Hawaii.
She arrived on Oahu on Sept. 5. The newspaper adds that Bartholomew is the mother of three children.
A cause of death has not yet been announced and an investigation is ongoing.
