Unresponsive Woman Found Zip-Tied On South Carolina Riverbank

“Keep the victim and her family in your prayers …”

A white female remains unidentified after a fisherman purportedly found her half-naked and unresponsive while trolling the Coosawhatchie River in Jasper County, South Carolina yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 2:57 p.m. EST on Wednesday (April 3, 2024), nearby homeowners watched as emergency responders flooded the terminus of Corner Lake Road — four miles east of Grays, S.C. — in reference to reports of an unresponsive person with their hands bound on the riverbank. 

“She was in bad shape, but alive,” a nearby resident noted on Facebook. “My cousin saw [law enforcement] arrive and saw the ambulance leave, but the ambulance didn’t turn on sirens until they got to Possum Corner [Road].”

According to the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO), they have since requested the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office to facilitate the identification of “Jane Doe” — who purportedly remains unresponsive and unconscious in a Georgia-based hospital.

“She’s in her late 30s to early 40s,” an anonymous source told FITSNews. “[She] was found on the boat ramp concrete … she was beaten extremely bad.”

According to investigators, Jane Doe was retrieved from the Corner Lake Boat Landing — a county-owned spillway leading to hundreds of acres of uninhabited swampland canvassing the Palmetto State Lowcountry.

“We ask that you keep the victim and her family in your prayers,” JSCO wrote on Facebook.  “Please keep in mind that this is an ongoing investigation. Sheriff [Donald] Hipp would like to extend his appreciation to everyone assisting with this case.”

FITSNews is currently investigating the myriad of Facebook comments relating to this incident and is preparing to file multiple Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests seeking additional information from authorities.

If this woman had ever been arrested, one would think she could be identified by finger prints. If not, DNA. There have been many unsolved murders in Jasper County over a long period of time. Someone definitely needs to look into this investigation in hopes another mystery is not left unsolved. There are a lot of good people in this county but, there is a bad drug problem there too.

I pray law enforcement are able to capture the people responsible for this evil crime.

Just curious, are you doing anything to help with the issues there? I mean there’s bad drug problems in my own community and probably a lot of others nation wide. If you have a solution I am sure that the Sheriff in that county would love to meet with you and discuss a way to end it.
