The York County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a young woman whose body was found at the county line Thursday off Doby’s Bridge Road.
YCSO spokesman Trent Faris said workers at a water testing station found the body just before 10 a.m. in a rocky area near Sugar Creek.
Faris said Thursday afternoon that it was still too early in what he called a “death investigation” to say if investigators suspect foul play or not.
“The coroner has to do their autopsy and such, and hopefully we’ll have something to release soon,” Faris said.
On Friday, the sheriff’s office posted a request on its website for help in identifying the woman, along with photos of her tattoos.
The woman is described as young, possibly in her mid-20s, with brown eyes and a dark skin complexion, but her actual ethnicity is undetermined. The woman is 5 foot 3 and about 130 pounds.
The woman had pearl earrings in her ears and was wearing a gold necklace with a charm that reads “Happy,” made by Jook and Nona. She was also wearing two silver rings on her right hand.
She also had several distinctive tattoos. On her right arm was the letter “Q” with the playing card image of a spade beneath. On her left wrist was a tattooed image of a heart. On her back right shoulder is a design that appears to be a cursive “H.” On her right shoulder is a crescent moon under a star, with the words “Naveed Mahmood” under the moon.
Anyone who can help identify this woman is asked to call the York County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 628-3056 or Crime Stoppers of York County at (877) 409-4321.
