PRINCESS ANNE — Princess Anne Police Chief Tim Bozman reports that officers responded to the wooded area behind Food Lion here on Sunday, June 5 to investigate a report of a deceased person being located.
Police were able to identify the person as Tiffany Huang Moisan, 48, from Kemp Nursery Road, located near Princess Anne. She had been reported missing her family on June 4.
Moisan’s body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. “Although there was no apparent signs of foul play, this incident remains under investigation pending results from the autopsy,” the chief stated in a prepared news release.
Moisan worked at the Wallops Flight Facility for more than 15 years. Previously she worked at the University of California, and went to school at Texas A&M, earning her Ph.D. at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
In March 2015 Moisan wrote in Island Access, a NASA publication published by the Wallops Office of Communications and Optical Systems Group publication, that “There are many things that I like about working at Wallops. My work has taken me on oceanographic cruises in the coastal waters of the Atlantic. I have been fortunate to experience a mixture of biology, physiology, and optics. I have experienced interdisciplinary work between biology and engineering to study the ocean’s ecosystem to understand Ocean Color Remote Sensing.”
Her research interests included phytoplankton ecology, physiology and optics as it applied to remote sensing in earth science.
