Woman discovered dead Saturday morning near Glencoe

A woman was discovered dead Saturday morning just inside the Calhoun County line in Glencoe, Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown said.

Brown said he received a call about the woman shortly before 5 a.m. and arrived at the scene to pronounce the woman dead about 6 a.m.

“It’s a Glencoe address but it’s in our county limits,” Brown said. “She was found near a trailer behind the RJ’s gas station.”

Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade said an investigator from his office was assisting Glencoe police, the primary responding agency.

Efforts to reach Glencoe police were not immediately successful on Saturday morning.

Brown said he’s still working to identify the woman, who he described to be in her 20s, but said he believes she’s from Calhoun County. He declined to comment further on the nature of her death.

Brown also declined to say how the woman was discovered.

“It’s still very much an active investigation,” he said.
