Authorities Release Audio Of 911 Call About The Discovery Of Sheridan Wahl's Remains
"She’s just laid out on the, laid out on the grass," the 911 caller told emergency dispatchers following the discovery of Sheridan Wahl’s body in Florence County on Sept. 21.
The 911 audio regarding the discovery of a Florida college student’s body behind a South Carolina fire station last month has been released.
On Sept. 21, Sheridan Wahl’s body was discovered at a firehouse in Pomplico, South Carolina. Local officials have now released audio of the morbid discovery.
"I’m going to need the sheriff’s department to 630 West Highway 378,” an unidentified caller told emergency dispatchers after finding her body, according to transcripts of the call, obtained by WBTW. “We have found a body on our property.”
“Oh my gosh," the dispatcher said "OK. Was it wrapped or anything or just laying out?”
The caller stated the body had been found at the rear of the fire station. "just...laid out on the grass," the caller responded and the dispatcher promptly sent authorities out to investigate.
Wahl had been reported days earlier after vanishing in Myrtle Beach, according to a police report obtained by Oxygen.com. Her family said she’d been on a road trip to visit her father at the time of her disappearance. Pomplico is located about 50 miles west of Myrtle Beach.
The University of South Florida student’s red Toyota Corolla was found in a cornfield by investigators on Sept. 20. It had been set ablaze, according to an incident report. The damaged sedan was missing its license plates and its vehicle identification number was illegible; It’s still unclear how the vehicle got there.
Authorities have released little information regarding the investigation into Wahl’s death and haven’t confirmed whether it was the result of foul play. No arrests have been made in the case.
On Sept. 24, an autopsy conducted on Wahl’s remains also proved inconclusive, pending additional postmortem studies, officials said.
“The death is still under investigation,” Keith von Lutcken, the Florence County Coroner, told Oxygen.com on Monday. “The manner and cause are pending at this time and will be for several more weeks until we have concluded everything,”
Wahl’s family took to social media last month to confirm her death.
"We are heartbroken beyond belief to share the news that our beloved Sheridan Lynne Wahl has passed," her mother, Kelly Wahl, stated on Facebook after her remains were recovered. “Sheridan was our cherished and loving daughter, sister, niece and friendly. She will be missed more than words can ever express.”
Wahl’s mother said she last spoke to her daughter via video chat at about 1 p.m. on Sept. 19 in Myrtle Beach. At the time, Wahl told her family she was planning her trip back home to Florida. Follow-up phone calls to Wahl’s phone went to her voicemail.
Tommy Crosby, a public information officer for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, which is the case’s lead investigative body, declined to comment on the active case on Monday. The Myrtle Beach Police Department, who is assisting on the case didn’t immediately respond to questions about the case this week.
Anyone with information related to the case is urged to contact the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division at 803-737-9000.
