Body of Texas woman found in hole on Maryland beach

The 30-year-old's body was removed from the sand in the resort town of Ocean City

It's not known if she fell into the hole or got in on her own.

Ocean City police were notified about the body Monday morning after beachgoers discovered it in a hole in the sand.

The investigation is ongoing.

Medical examiners in Maryland are looking into the cause of death for a North Texas woman who was found dead with her body buried in the sand.

A toxicology report was pending, police said. Her death was ruled accidental.

"Investigators are still trying to determine what caused that hole to fall in, which is something we may never know, but we're still investigating it", she said.




"People just don't realize that in the case of a cave-in it happens suddenly, and anyone around you will have a terribly hard time digging you out", he said.

Meanwhile, social media users expressed their condolences to Ashley's family and posted sympathetic messages on Twitter.

"At this time, we don't think there were any suspicious circumstances surrounding this incident", Richard said.

O'Connor was recently married and had just established a painting business with her wife, Janet, according to a GoFundMe page established to help with funeral costs.

Anyone with information on O'Connor's death is asked to call police at 410-723-6604.
