PICTOU – Foul play has been ruled out in the death of a woman found last Friday in a dingy in the waters off Marshville, Pictou County, according to an RCMP news release.
Jeanne Francis Lipton, 66, of Moncton, N.B. was in a one-person inflatable dingy, which had been caught in the current of the changing tide, Sgt. Kevin Dunlevy of the Pictou RCMP detachment said.
At last sighting before Lipton disappeared, the dingy was being taken out into the Northumberland Strait by the current. When it was located a short time later, Lipton was found in the dingy with no vital signs and was later pronounced dead at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow.
The Nova Scotia Medical Examiners' Service has ruled out foul play in her death and the RCMP investigation is now concluded.
