Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - A preliminary autopsy indicates foul play was not an "obvious" factor in the death of a woman who was found dead in a wooded area in Lexington County after being reported missing.
The victim, identified as 20-year-old Kyrstin Star Blackburn, was found near Platt Springs Road Friday.
The Lexington County Coroner's Office says Blackburn's cause of death is pending further studies, including a toxicology test. A preliminary autopsy performed Saturday reportedly indicated no obvious indications of foul play.
Lexington County deputies say they opened a missing person's case for Blackburn on Tuesday.
Officers say right now, they're looking to determine if her death was a criminal act or natural causes. They say they'll use the coroner's report to determine that.
No arrests have been made in connection to the case.
