FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a vehicle off Rocky River Road in the southern end of the county on Saturday afternoon.

ICSO deputies and Iredell County EMS personnel responded to 480 Rocky River Road about 12:15 p.m. The address is near the Iredell-Mecklenburg county line.

The 30-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene, Sheriff Darren Campbell said.

ICSO investigators and crime scene investigators are on the scene, the sheriff said, and the medical examiner was enroute.

Campbell said the cause of death had not yet been confirmed, and the case has not officially been ruled a homicide.

“We’re trying to work the case,” the sheriff said, “and we’ll have investigators working the rest of the day and into the night.”
