NEWBERRY COUNTY — The body of a woman found in Lake Murray early Sunday morning has been identified as 73-year-old Judith Horton Walling of Songbird Lane in Prosperity, the Newberry County Sheriff’s Department said this morning.
The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office had asked for the public’s help to identify Walling, who was found by a resident in the water near his dock in Lake Murray near Macedonia Lutheran Church just after 7 a.m. Sunday.
Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said a resident called to offer information that led investigators to a gated home off Songbird Lane.
Walling’s family had gone on a trip and she remained behind. Foster said she apparently went into the water sometime late in the evening Saturday or early Sunday morning.
Foster thanked the public for its concern, support and information during the investigation.
