MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The name of the Bartlett woman who went overboard on a cruise last week has been identified.

Friends have identified the woman as 21-year-old A'riel Brianna Marion.

At this time, we do not know how she went overboard. Her death is still under investigation.

However, her best friend says she does not think this was a suicide, and that Marion was always full of smiles - even in bad times. The friend also says Marion had a dream of moving to Miami or California to become a tattoo model.  

Passengers on Royal Caribbean's "Allure of The Seas" reported a woman falling over the railing.

Closed circuit TV cameras caught the incident on a time stamped tape, which allowed Coast Guard crews to get an idea of the location where she went overboard.

Action News 5 will provide more information as new details are revealed during the investigation.
