Coroner: No sign of foul play in death of SC woman

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say an autopsy report shows no sign of foul play in the death of a South Carolina woman who was missing for about 2 weeks.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported Tuesday that authorities are waiting for the results of a toxicology report to determine how 48-year-old Julia Ann Vess of Simpsonville might have died. She was last seen May 17. Her body was identified Monday.

Authorities say two men searching for hunting sites found Vess' car in a heavily wooded area near Woodruff on Sunday. Deputies searched the area and found the woman's body about a mile way.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger says it could take weeks to get the toxicology test results.
