Mysterious ‘mermaid’ woman has been identified.
The Fresno Bee says the Fresno County Sheriffs’ Office has finally identified the mysterious woman claiming to be a mermaid named Joanna as a 33-year-old Virginia native. The name of the young woman has not yet been released, adding she may have been a crime victim. ‘Joanna’ was found on Tuesday night wandering a mountain road in Fresno County half naked. Fresno Police say she appeared to be wet, had no recollection of her identity, and was in need of help. She was taken to the hospital and arrangements are now being made to reunite her with friends and family, the sheriff’s office said.
