“My kids learned how to swim here,” said Justine Power.
Power was disappointed to see Luther Hill Park in Spencer closed Saturday, especially on one of the hottest weekends of the year.
“I just feel bad for the kids in town; there’s really not anywhere else to go,” said Power.
Spencer Police say a woman was found dead in the lake by the park after she was reported missing Saturday morning.
Police say a lifeguard noticed something in the water and kayaked out to find the woman’s body floating near the shore.
“I don’t know if it was someone I knew when I lived in town. You just don’t know, whatever it is it’s just super sad,” said Power.
The Worcester County District Attorney’s Office is actively investigating this woman’s death.
