Police in Italy have launched an investigation after the body of a woman was pulled from the water close to George Clooney's home at Lake Como.
The Hollywood actor owns a luxurious lakeside mansion at the popular tourist destination, but the peace at the beauty spot was disturbed this week (beg29Mar10) when a passer-by spotted a corpse in the water and called police.
The body of a woman, said to be aged between 25 and 30, was pulled from the lake by authorities close to Clooney's multi-million dollar villa.
A police spokesman has not given any more details about the woman's death, but revealed the body may have entered the water further upstream and washed into Lake Como through one of the adjoining rivers.
The rep tells Britain's Daily Star Sunday newspaper, "There is a strong wind blowing towards the south and we believe the body was dumped up lake and taken down close to the home of George Clooney."
