FALL RIVER (CBS) – Weeks after the death of a Fall River woman in a public pool, the Department of Conservation and Recreation is still searching for answers.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Pool at Lafayette Park was to be drained on Saturday.

The pool has been closed since June 28 after the body of 36-year-old Marie Joseph was found floating on the surface.

The body went undiscovered for two days because of murky water.

A makeshift memorial for Joseph continues to be outside the fence of the pool.

The staff of the pool has been on paid administrative leave since the discovery.
