HANDLEY, W.Va. — A Florida woman is dead in eastern Kanawha County after investigators believes she fell from a porch late Tuesday night.
“She was found by some neighbors walking near the street and saw her body lying near the street,” said Sgt. Brian Humphreys. “It appears this was an accident.”
The woman is identified as Cheryl Darlene Pauley, 60, of New Smyrna, Florida.. According to Humphreys she was in town because of the death of a loved one.
“It adds tragedy on top of tragedy,” said Humphreys. “It’s sad enough when you lose someone, and now the family is dealing with this also.”
Although investigators are pretty sure her death was an accident, they are continuing their investigation.
