Post-mortem for woman found on Seven Mile Beach

A post-mortem examination was performed Wednesday on a woman found dead outside a Seven Mile Beach bar and restaurant over the weekend. 

Cassandra Hurlston, 38, was found near the Tiki Beach bar and restaurant along West Bay Road overnight Sunday after family members called police late Saturday expressing concerns for her welfare. 

So far, Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officers have declined to discuss the cause of death. They have indicated nothing appears suspicious, but said they would await the post-mortem results before making a determination. 

Mrs. Hurlston was not responsive when she was located, and medical personnel were not able to revive her with CPR. She was pronounced dead at the Cayman Islands Hospital early Sunday, police said. 

Initial reports to police indicated Mrs. Hurlston was found slumped over the wheel of a vehicle. Early Sunday, Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officers had cordoned off a wooded area just north of Tiki Beach and appeared to be searching that area as well. 

Family members indicated Mrs. Hurlston had been suffering from depression in recent months and said they did not believe there was anything suspicious regarding her death.
