COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County Coroner's Office announced Thursday that the person whose body was found on Koon Road earlier this week was the victim of a homicide. 

The coroner identified the victim as 52-year-old Brenda Victoria Jackson, of Columbia. Jackson's body was found by a citizen in the wooded area behind Rehoboth Restoration Church Tuesday. 

According to officers, Jackson was seen walking in the area moments before a citizen reported hearing gunfire.
