Investigators are trying to determine the identity of a woman whose body was found in the burning car on May River Rd. in Bluffton Tuesday.  

It happened around 2:30 a.m. on the side of the highway near Big Bluff Rd. Officials with the Bluffton Township Fire District arrived to find a Honda Civic engulfed in flames. Once they got the fire out, they found the woman's body inside.

"There is no indication at this time that the vehicle was involved in any sort of collision that led to the fire or the victim's death. Right now, we have not determined what the cause of death for the victim is or what the cause of the fire is. Those are both under investigation right now."

Her body is being sent to the Medical University of South Carolina for an autopsy.
