PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — No foul play is suspected in the death of Katy Roe, officials with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old’s body was found near Depoe Bay last week. She had not been seen since around 2 a.m. on Sunday, April 17. She was said to be walking home from the Wing Wa restaurant in Depoe Bay after having a drink with her grandmother, who left before her.

Her official cause of death was drowning.

Her body was discovered around 6 a.m. in the water just outside of the Depoe Bay Harbor. Officials said her body was consistent with having been in the water since the time of her disappearance and there were no obvious signs of foul play.

The medical examiner’s office is still waiting for toxicology reports, however.

Roe’s family will hold a celebration of life at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 at the Gleneden Community Club. The public is welcome.
