BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The Berkeley County coroner is investigating after a body was found at a Jedburg Road gas station.

A female body was found in a vehicle at the Flying J gas station, according to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury.

The person parked her vehicle but never got out of the car, according to Berkeley County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Mike Cochran.

Salisbury said a store manager reported noticing the vehicle between 4:30 a.m. and 5 a.m., with a person sitting inside. A little later, the manager went to open the door and spotted the woman slumped over the steering wheel, Salisbury said.

There were no visible wounds or apparent injuries, Salisbury said. 

The coroner's office is working to determine the woman's identity and a cause of death.
