MYSTERY surrounds how two women were found separated in different parts of the Chicago River within an hour of each other.
The body of the first woman was discovered in the water around 10:40 p.m. on the 100 block of North Riverside Plaza in the West Loop neighborhood, police said.
The body was pulled out by the Chicago Police Department (CPD) marine unit and pronounced dead at the scene, according to Officer Jessica Rocco, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department, and the coroner’s office.

She was also pronounced dead at the scene.
The second woman was identified as 80-year-old Yuet Tsang, according to the Cook County Medical Investigations Bureau ABC7 Chicago report says.
Detectives are conducting a death investigation pending autopsy results, officials said.
So far, police have not said if the two scenes are related.
