Skeletal remains found in Florence County identified as missing woman, coroner says

Skeletal remains discovered in a field in Florence County have been identified as a missing 55-year-old woman, coroner Keith von Lutcken said Tuesday.
The remains were found on Oct. 10, 2019, off Old No. 4 Highway between Effingham and Coward.
The remains were sent to the Medical University of South Carolina for a skeletal survey, according to von Lutcken. He added no trauma was noted during the survey except for older rib fractures.
In December 2019, a man came forward who claimed the remains may be that of his mother, von Lutcken said.
Dental records were then obtained and submitted to a forensic odontologist for identification.

According to von Lutcken, the remains were identified as Nancy Ann Pritchard, of Florence.
