BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office deputies are trying to determine how a woman died on a Lowcountry golf course over the weekend.

Evelyn Scott, 76, was found dead on a course in Callawassie Island on Saturday.

The golfers who discovered her body told investigators they were playing golf behind Scott when they noticed she disappeared. They found her in a body of water, but deputies don’t know how she got there.

An autopsy was completed and the coroner is now waiting for a toxicology report before he determines her cause of death.

“She was observed golfing alone by two other golfers. There does not appear to be any third person involvement in her death, so no foul play is suspected. There was no trauma or anything suspicious found during autopsy. That’s pending toxicology and pending medical studies,” said Cpt. Bob Bromage, Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff office says her death is still under investigation.
