Boston woman found dead on Revere Beach was not victim of foul play

The body of a Boston woman was discovered on the Revere Beach shoreline early Thursday, and authorities do not believe she was the victim of a crime.

There was no obvious sign of traumatic injuries, according to State Police and Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.

“Based on a physical examination and evidence at the scene, the death of a Boston woman found on Revere Beach this morning does not appear to be the result of criminal conduct,’’ Conley spokesman Jake Wark wrote in an e-mail.

The state medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death after more forensic testing is conducted, Wark said.

The woman has been tentatively identified, but her name has been withheld pending notification of next of kin, State Police spokesman David Procopio wrote in an e-mail.

The woman’s body was spotted by passersby around 5:57 a.m. on the beach near the intersection of Shirley Avenue and Revere Beach Boulevard, Procopio said.
