Authorities Continue Investigating Circumstances Around Death of Women Pulled From Water at Sandy Point in Annapolis

Authorities for the Department of Natural Resources Police in Annapolis are continuing to investigate the circumstances around the death of the woman who died days after being pulled from the water at Sandy Point State Park.

Geeta Stowe, 42, of Linthicum Heights, passed away at an area hospital on May 25, 2021, about 48-hours after park-goers were seen pulling her body out of the water.  She had been listed in critical condition while investigators sought the public's help with identifying her, relying only on her tattoos.  

An autopsy will be conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore in order to determine an exact cause and manner of death, according to a police spokesperson.  While waiting on the results from the post-mortem exam, detectives handling the case are also searching for the individuals who were seen pulling Stowe's body from the water.  The individuals, two unidentified males, had left by the time police and first responders arrived.  Details pertaining to how and where Ms. Stowe's body entered the water prior to being found have not been made clear.  "There are a lot of unanswered questions which we are working diligently to answer," the police spokesperson said.  

A source connected to Ms. Stowe told Report Annapolis that she was a teacher in Prince George County and was an avid swimmer.  "This is all very strange," the source said during an interview.  

Geeta was reportedly born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Maryland at a young age.  She is said to have attended college at the University of Maryland and Goucher College. In recent years, Ms. Stowe had suffered the loss of her brother and mother, Rekha, to whom at least two of her tattoos were dedicated.
