Tracy Hottenstein
Tracy Hottenstein's death in Sea Isle City has been ruled accidental.

Authorities say the 35-year-old Pennsylvania woman whose body was found along the Sea Isle City Marina in February died accidentally.

Officials on Thursday afternoon said Tracy Hottenstein died from hypothermia and acute intoxication. But the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office still made a public call for help to trace the last six hours of Hottenstein's life.

Her body was found by a passerby less than six hours later, or at about 7:50 a.m. on Feb. 15, near the Sea Isle City Marina along 42nd Place marina, just south of the Sea Isle City Bridge.
