Detectives have released the name of the woman whose body was found in a raging creek near a home in Binghamton.

The resident told WNBF News he spotted the woman’s body face up with her arms outstretched in the air. He said her body was partially clothed and surrounded by tree trunks.

Water in Bayless Creek near the town of Binghamton Line ran fast after two strong thunderstorms the previous afternoon and evening.

The man said the body appeared battered, but investigators have given no indication of whether they believe Scott was attacked or how long she may have been dead before her body was discovered.

In a news release issued Monday, detectives said an autopsy was performed because Scott’s cause of death was “undetermined at this time.” It is not known if Scott was reported missing.

Those with information may contact the Binghamton Police Department Detective Agency at (607) 772-7080.
