Two fully clothed women, each of their bodies bound by duct tape, were found floating in the Hudson River off Riverside Park Wednesday afternoon, the NYPD said.
The women, described to be around 25 to 30 years old, were found with no signs of trauma, according to officials.
The NYPD released a sketch of both women (below).
Law enforcement sources told News 4 it appears the women, both of whom are wearing coats, are bound together somewhere on their bodies.
The FDNY had earlier said it received a call at 2:40 p.m. for two bodies in the 200 block of Riverside Boulevard.
A medical examiner will determine an exact cause of death and the investigation remains ongoing.
