Pregnant woman's body found in creek

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - The Umatilla County, Ore., district attorney says the body of a pregnant woman has been found in an Eastern Oregon creek near Pendleton.

District Attorney Dean Gushwa says an autopsy showed the woman was between 21 and 35 years old and was three months pregnant when she died.

Her body was found last weekend in the North Fork of McKay Creek.

Gushwa says the body had been in the water for an unknown length of time. Sheriff's deputies are still trying to identify her.
