The Baltimore Police Department’s Marine Unit and Dive Team recovered the body of a woman who was seen going into the Inner Harbor near the Maryland Science Center Saturday morning.

Divers from the Baltimore City Fire Department first responded to the scene and started searching the waters after women’s clothing was found along the harbor promenade, around 7:30 a.m. Police divers found the woman’s body about three hours later.


“An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of her death,” said Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman. “There were no signs of trauma to her body when she was found.”

Police on Monday identified the woman as Alexandra Carroll, a 25-year-old Federal Hill resident.

Last Friday a man was rescued from the water across from the science center next to the Barnes & Noble bookstore. An Inner Harbor Unit officer jumped into the water to save the man.

Just over a year ago, a 26-year-old Vermont man fell into the Inner Harbor and died in almost exactly the same spot as the man was rescued from near the Barnes & Noble.

In August, the city committed to spending roughly $125,000 to install safety equipment around the Inner Harbor. Officials said they were adding 16 ladders and 35 emergency life ring stations, specifically in areas near bars and with high foot traffic.
