A New Jersey nanny found dead in a lake was killed; no arrests have been made: Prosecutors

kali9/iStock(JERSEY CITY, N.J.) -- A New Jersey nanny was out for a jog when she was allegedly attacked and left for dead in lake, officials said.

The body of Caroline Cano was found Sunday morning in a lake in Jersey City's Lincoln Park, the Hudson County prosecutors said.

The city's medical examiner's office ruled her death a homicide, prosecutors said, though they declined to release more information on the manner of death.

Cano, 45 of Jersey City, lived a few blocks from the park, and her roommate said she went for a jog every morning before going to her job as a nanny, reported ABC New York station WABC-TV.

"They realize something was wrong when she didn't show up to the church," neighbor Frankie Ramos told WABC-TV. "She never missed a day."

No arrests have been made, prosecutors said Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office at 201-915-1345.
