WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – Police on Tuesday responded to a call of a drowning at a closed West Valley swimming pool.
According to WVC Lt. Bill Merritt, city employees arrived to do regular maintenance at the Centennial Swimming Pool, 5355 W. 3100 South, when they discovered the body of a woman floating in the water.
The woman was later identified as 25-year-old Karina Aguilar.
She was clothed, and there were no obvious signs of foul play, authorities said.
The gates to the pool were reportedly closed and locked. Police checked the perimeter of the property and didn’t see any signs of damage or forced entry, Merritt said. Authorities also checked the surrounding city park property and are reviewing surveillance footage.
“Police have not yet been able to determine how she got inside the pool facility,” Merritt wrote in a statement. “Because the pool is closed, they only do maintenance a couple times a week.”
An investigation is underway.
