Police: Woman found dead on beach

A 36-year-old woman was found dead on an East End beach near a hotel property early Friday morning, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service reported.

The woman, a resident of George Town, had not been seen since Thursday afternoon. A family member called police to report her missing around 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Early Friday, officers discovered the woman had checked into a hotel and reported there to investigate. When the officers arrived, hotel staff informed them that the woman’s body was found on the beach.

It was not immediately clear what caused the woman’s death, but police said they do not suspect “foul play” in the incident.
