The body of a woman was found on the beach in Litchfield at about 7 a.m. today.
Deputy Coroner Sam Hodge says it does not appear foul play was involved in the death of the white female who appears to be 55-65 years old.
Hodge said no trauma was found on the woman’s body and indications are she died of natural causes.
Midway Fire and Rescue was called to the scene to transport the body to the hospital.
Because of where the woman’s body was found, her death is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office but “it is not believed a crime occurred,” the Coroner’s Office said.
Anyone who has any information about the woman should call the Sheriff’s Office at 843-546-5102.
