BORDENTOWN, N.J. - November 25, 2009

Her identity has been revealed as Farisha Rahamot-Ali, 38, of Queens, New York. She is a native of Trinidad who was reported missing on October 27th.

Her sister, who lives in Willingboro, was searching the New Jersey State Police website when she saw the press release with a composite drawing and photos of her sister's tattoos.

She contacted Bordentown State Police station detectives to tell them of her suspicion that the body was that of her sister.

Rahamot-Ali was then positively identified by dental records.

Rahamot-Ali was discovered just off the Mansfield Township shoreline by a kayaker on Saturday afternoon, November 14th.

  The cause and manner of death have not yet been determined. The results of toxicology tests are still pending.
