The deceased female has been positively identified as Tazia May, 32 years old, of Roseburg.  Her next of kin have been notified.  

On Monday, June 29th, 2020 just after 0815 hours a citizen reported seeing a human body floating face down in the South Umpqua river, just west of Micelli Park in Roseburg.  Emergency personnel from the Roseburg Police Department, Roseburg Fire Department, Douglas County District #2 Fire Department, and DCSO responded to the area.  They found an adult female, deceased, in the water about 25-30 feet from the shore.  Personnel from District #2 Fire were able to recover the body with their boat.

The adult female has been positively identified, but her identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.  The Douglas County Medical Examiner took possession of the body.  The female was fully clothed and there were no obvious signs of external physical injury.  The investigation is ongoing, but at this time there is nothing to indicate foul play was involved.
