(Newser) – The US Coast Guard says the FBI is investigating after the body of a woman who fell off a cruise ship was pulled from waters off the coast of Massachusetts. The Portland Press Herald reports the Massachusetts Medical Examiner's Office plans to perform an autopsy on the 59-year-old's body. The Coast Guard says it received a distress call around 7pm Friday saying the woman had fallen overboard the Seabourn Quest when the ship was about 10 miles off Cape Ann. They say the ship left Boston Friday afternoon and was bound for Bar Harbor, Maine. An FBI spokeswoman says her agency has nothing more to say until the autopsy is completed. The identity and hometown of the woman have not been released. (Read more cruise ships stories.)
