LD final resting place is well documented as is the final position. At base of a step in a brook, on knees head at top of step facing water direction and mouth open. And missing the tongue. Stomach contained small amount of coagulated mass. These are all facts hopefully.
If she passed away Feb 1st, i would expect very little if no water flow in the brook. When found in the spring, melt would be more obvious in the brook. So no tongue would perhaps indicate in the months she lay there, running water eroded the tongue. My question, and i hope this isn't an obvious error, is why was the stomach empty and not filled with melt water?
