The area is just a little over 7 miles if driving from Berbiglia's apartment.

 In a report released late Monday afternoon, police said that the death was a homicide.

Police originally thought Berbiglia had been shot, but an autopsy revealed she died from blunt force trauma to the head, Horry County Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick said.

The Horry County Police Department is asking for the public's help solving this case.

In a press release mid-afternoon on Monday, they said "no suspect information has been developed in the death of Amber Berbiglia."

Originally, in the police report, an "argument" was listed in an area beside Circumstances. But, police later said that was a typo and the circumstances are "unknown."

 Police provided very few details on the report.

Police did expand their plea to the public. Previously they wanted anyone with info about the area where her body was found and the bridge above.

"In addition to what (was) put on Facebook Saturday in reference to the bridge, we are now asking anyone with any information they feel may be beneficial to us in developing a suspect to call our tip line at 843-915-TIPS.

 Police also confirmed that a car towed from the scene was Berbiglia's.

If you saw someone walking or standing on the Robert Edge Bridge at the top where the bridge meets the ground on the west side of the waterway Friday afternoon, call (843) 248-1520 and ask to speak to the Violent Crimes Detective.

Sgt. Robert Kegler said the case is a homicide investigation at this point.
