FAIRFIELD — Police still do not know the circumstances surrounding a woman’s death after her body was found last month in a Fairfield canal.
Delicia Wilkerson-Smith, 41, of Fairfield, was found by a passerby April 10 in the Putah South Canal near the 3200 block of North Texas Street.
Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were both working on the case, since the canal is on federal property.
Investigators have yet to determine the cause of death or how the woman’s body ended up in the canal. Fairfield Police Lt. Steve Crane said the department is waiting on an autopsy report from the county coroner’s office.
Anyone with information about the woman’s death is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.
