DOWNSVILLE, Md. (AP) – Officials say a Maryland couple was killed when their boat went over a dam on the Potomac River.

The Herald-Mail reported that rescue workers initially found a woman’s body following the Sunday morning discovery of an overturned Bass Tracker fiberglass boat. News outlets report the Maryland Natural Resources Police identified the woman as 62-year-old Susan Lynne King, and found the body of her husband, 63-year-old David Robert King on Monday.

Police spokeswoman Catherine Medellin says a preliminary investigation shows their boat went over Dam No. 4.

Capt. Brian Albert says the Keedysville couple was registered as the owners of the boat.

Albert says Susan King worked at Meritus Medical Center. He says investigators haven’t found many family members of the couple.
