Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Conducts Investigation into Deceased Woman Found at Saluda Lake
The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding a deceased adult female found this morning at a public boat ramp off of Buckskin Rd at Saluda Lake.
Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene shortly before 9:00am after a call was received in the 911 Communications Center regarding a female that appeared to be injured or perhaps dead on a public dock located at the boat ramp (#322 Buckskin Rd). The caller was one of two men that had gone to the lake to go fishing for the day.
Deputies located an adult black female on the dock that was deceased at the scene with severe trauma to the head. No witnesses to the incident have been identified or located at this time and initial observation of the victim at the scene leads Detectives to believe that the wound is characteristic of a gunshot wound. No weapon has been recovered at the time of this release.
An autopsy will be performed on the victim at the Coroner’s request to confirm the manner and cause of death.
