FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- An investigation is underway after a woman's body was discovered in a canal in southwest Fresno.

Authorities have identified the woman as 33-year-old Jaime Andersen.


Irrigation employees found the body at Nielsen and Teilman Avenues around 8:30 Tuesday morning.
It appears Andersen had been in the water for quite some time.
