Sheriff and Coroner, TJ McDermott, has released the name of the woman who was found deceased on the ice in the Clark Fork River on Wednesday as 44-year-old Amy Dixon of Superior.

The cause and manner of death is pending upon completion of a toxicology report.

The Missoula Police Department is continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mrs. Dixon’s death.

On Wednesday, KGVO reported that Missoula Police Spokesman Travis Welsh said the call came in to 9-1-1 just before noon on Wednesday.

"At 11:46 this morning, we responded to a report of somebody lying on the ice on the north side of the Clark Fork River in the 600 block of West Broadway," Welsh began. "A person on the south side of the river had noted what appeared to be clothing out on the ice. First responders arrived and did indeed find the body of an adult female lying on the ice just a few feet from the bank."

The body was transported to the Montana State Crime Lab here in Missoula.
