ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – A dismembered body found in a wooded section of central Florida has been identified as woman from Georgia.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said a passer-by discovered the body of 42-year old Ethel Shannon McCarson in an Orange County field on Wednesday. Clayton says her body was “not intact.” She didn’t provide any further details on the condition of the body.

Investigators are working to determine where McCarson was before she died.

McCarson lived in Aragon, Georgia. The sheriff’s office say they weren’t sure why she was in Florida.
