Authorities say they could wait 12 to 16 weeks to receive results from a toxicology test conducted on the body of a 19 year old female washed ashore in Hull over the weekend.
Plymouth County District Attorney Spokeswoman Bridget Norton Middleton said Monday afternoon the cause and manner of death of Violet Nicholson of Hull remains undetermined.
A Beach Avenue resident spotted the body on the northern end of Nantasket Beach Saturday afternoon. The witness said the body lay face down at the water’s edge, wearing jeans and a jacket.
According to an acquaintance, Nicholson had a small child and had just recently moved to Hull, where she had resided with a friend.
Hull Police ask anyone with possible information about the death call them at (781) 925-2210.
