An investigation is underway after a woman’s body was discovered in a shallow grave Sunday afternoon in South Carolina, according to a county coroner.
Sheriff deputies discovered the remains at a cornfield in the town of Gaffney around 2 p.m. after she had been reported missing by family members, said Cherokee County coroner Dennis Fowler in a news release.
Fowler said an autopsy will be performed to confirm her identity and cause of death, Fox Carolina reported.
An investigation is ongoing.
“The remains were located in a heavily wooded area, near the location the victim was reported missing last Sunday morning,” the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office said without elaborating how he died. “The area of the recovery was extremely difficult to access due to heavy underbrush.”
