Police identified a woman pulled from the water near the Promenade in Canton as Elizabeth O’Hearn, 53.

She was found floating in the water, according to Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, around 5:45 a.m., and was dead at the scene.

O’Hearn’s body was found near the 2300 block of Boston St. on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Several reports have identified her as Dr. Elizabeth O’Hearn, a neuroscience professor at Johns Hopkins University.

Guglielmi said that O’Hearn’s death is listed as “pending,” meaning that an autopsy did not immediately identify the cause of death, and the police are awaiting a report from the Maryland Office of Chief Medical Examiners.
