Charleston County Coroner’s Office working to confirm identity of body pulled from water

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office is still working to confirm the identity of a body pulled from the water near Edisto Island on Sunday night.

The body was spotted around 5:45 p.m. by a couple walking along Botany Bay, a wildlife preserve on the island. The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office was called in for the recovery.

“The identity of the body found on Botany Bay yesterday has not been made at this time,” Deputy Coroner Sheila Williams said in an email late Monday morning. “As soon as we have this information and the family is contacted we will release it to the media.”
