MYRTLE BEACH, SC - Police are pretty certain the well-kept middle-aged woman with the dolphin tattoo on her leg came to Myrtle Beach to die, but they can't figure out who she is.

According to the Associated Press, authorities said the woman was found in the ocean on May 25. Rescuers tried CPR, but she died at the hospital.

Myrtle Beach Police say she had cuts on her wrists, and blood was found in a public bathroom about a mile away. The Horry County Coroner's Office says she likely died from drowning. They estimated that she was in her 50s or 60s.

With the careful record keeping and interconnectivity of the modern age, few people die without eventually being identified. She is one of only two entries from South Carolina this year in a federal database of unclaimed bodies.
