BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Investigators in South Carolina say a body found more than a decade ago is a Brunswick County woman.

WPDE in Myrtle Beach reports the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office submitted unidentified DNA to a national database, and it came back as the missing Haggadone.
On his last day in Office, Darlington County Coroner Eldridge Norton held a funeral for the woman with the help of the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office. She was laid to rest in Magnolia Cemetery in Hartsville. Her headstone simply reads “Known only by God.”
