A Connecticut State Police K9 was also called in to help search, police said. The search was called off Wednesday night. Gaccione is said to lives a few minutes walk by the river. It is unclear where she fell and was found one mile downstream by Westerly Fire Department. The Office of the State Medical examiner is determining the cause of death.
