Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey told WBTW that a homicide investigation is underway after a woman's body was found in a canal.
The victim's name is Lauren Holmes, age 23, and she was found at Holly Swamp on Church Road Sunday around 11:16 am.
She was found by a man who was looking for someone else and stumbled upon her body floating in the water.
She had been reported missing by her family Saturday night, Sealey says it looks as if she was shot to death.
No arrests have been made so far.
