RACINE, Wis. — A woman whose body was recovered early Sunday after she reportedly drove into Lake Michigan has been identified, according to the Racine County Medical Examiner's Office.

Days’ body was recovered by the Racine Water Rescue Response Team.

The sheriff's office does not suspect foul play at this time.

Her vehicle also was recovered.
