ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a woman whose body was found along the Chattahoochee River.

Roswell police spokeswoman Lisa Holland tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution 20-year-old Markiesha Taylor of Decatur was found Sunday afternoon on the banks of Vickery Creek Park, part of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Holland says the FBI was called to investigate because Taylor's body was found on property owned by the federal government.

Taylor's cause of death is unclear.

Two other bodies were also recovered from the river earlier this month.

Authorities say 56-year-old Gee Hang of Johns Creek was pulled from the river May 3 after she drowned. Two days later, 34-year-old Perfecto Ochoa Alvarado was found dead in the river near Austell. His death was ruled a homicide and remains under investigation.
