Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns announced the finding Monday, saying Sarah Majoras' death was due to drowning. Kearns said toxicology testing showed the 39-year-old Lambertville had a high level of alcohol in her system when she died.

Majoras' body was found Jan. 30 by state police divers in the Delaware & Raritan Canal. She had vanished five days earlier after leaving a New Hope, Pa. bar and crossing over the bridge into Lambertville.

Majoras was a bartender at the establishment, but was not working there the night she disappeared. Authorities have said she went to the bar that night to hang out with some friends.
