RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Richland County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating after a woman's body was found covered in trash off Two Notch Road.

Lt. Curtis Wilson with the sheriff's department says the woman was found unresponsive in the 6600 block of Two Notch Road near Roof Street Wednesday morning. Wilson says it appears the woman's body had been there for some time.

Wilson says an employee cleaning up the area found the body hidden under some trash around 10:30 a.m.

The coroner has not yet released the woman's identity nor her cause of death. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday. 

Bennie Backmon, the assistant manager of Go Used Tires next door to where the woman's body was found says he'll be stepping up security.

"Knowing that something like that could happen really close, right behind your shop, while you're working, you know,  taking care of your customers – kind of bothers you in the back of your mind," Backmon said.
