MONROE, Wash. – The body of the 22 year-old Monroe woman who fell over the falls at Cedar Ponds on April 12 was located and recovered on Saturday.  Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue volunteers and deputy, along with the woman’s family and friends, were conducting a search of waterways in the area when one of her friends located the body around noon.  The woman’s body was tangled up in a “strainer”, a debris pile of logs and branches.  It took several hours to recover her body from the water, and several more hours to transport her out of the canyon to the roadway where the Snohomish County Medical Examiner was waiting to take custody of the body.  The Medical Examiner will provide positive identification, as well as determine the cause and manner of death.  More than 20 SAR volunteers participated in the search and recovery on Saturday.
