COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC) - The Richland County Coroner’s Office has identified one of two bodies found on the University of South Carolina’s campus.

Coroner Naida Rutherford says Anna Gawlicka-Chruszcz, 48, of Columbia, was found dead Friday around 8:30 a.m. The coroner’s office has not released a cause of death but says they are working with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and campus police in the investigation.

SLED is looking into Gawlicka-Chruszcz’s death and another death that also took place on campus. There are limited details in the second on-campus death; the coroner has not identified that victim.

SLED officials say the deaths happened at separate locations and appear to be unrelated.
