Charlotte County Sherriff’s Office is investigating the death of a woman after her body was discovered in Charlotte County.

The body of an unidentified woman was found in the woods off Kings Highway near U.S. 41.

Investigators say the woman’s body was found around 5 p.m. Thursday evening near a homeless camp without any identification. Deputies also say they do not know how long the body had been there.

According to CCSO, “Due to the level of decomposition, we are unable to positively ID the female victim or determine cause of death. Cause of death is to be determined by the Medical Examiner.”
