Woman's body pulled from the Mississippi River in Wisconsin

A fisherman found the body on Tuesday afternoon.

Police on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River are investigating after a woman's body was pulled from the water Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies in Pierce County were called around 12:20 p.m. after a fisherman saw the body floating in the river in near Everts Resort in Trenton, the Pierce County Sheriff's Office said.

It's not clear how long the woman had been in the river, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
