Police: Death Of Woman Found In Lake Tahoe Appears To Be Accidental

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Police say the death of an 18-year-old woman found floating in Lake Tahoe appears to be accidental.

But police say they won't know for sure until an autopsy of Deyana Loranca of South Lake Tahoe is completed.

Loranca, a 2007 graduate of South Tahoe High School, was found
early Friday morning.

Attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.

Friends described her as a kind, generous person who had recently landed a job and planned to attend college soon.

An investigation continues into the death.
