The body of the victim, identified as Rajkumari Motwani, 55, was found at the bottom of the swimming pool when residents of a home in Long Island were cleaning up their backyard following a party on Saturday night.
They noticed a body in the deep end of the backyard pool.
Police officers responded to a 911 call from the resident early Sunday morning and Motwani`s body was pulled out from the water, Suffolk Police said in a statement.
Motwani`s body has been transported to the Suffolk County medical examiner`s office.

She said two adult children live in the house that was once inhabited by their parents, who moved to a different city two years ago.
