CLINTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Clinton Department of Public Safety is looking for information in the investigation of a woman's death on Saturday.

Police said 19-year-old Emily Asbill was found at a Clinton home on Calvert Avenue in cardiac arrest at about 11 p.m.

Robin Morse, director of the Clinton Department of Public Safety, said, "She was transported to the Laurens County Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. An autopsy has revealed that the victim died of asphyxiation due to strangulation."

Morse said Asbill was in a car with two other individuals outside the home on Calvert Avenue and at this point they do not know where the strangulation may have taken place.

The Clinton Department of Public Safety, the Laurens County Sheriff's Office and the State Law Enforcement Division are conducting a joint investigation into her death.

At this time no suspects or persons of interest have been named in her death. Morse said there is no threat to the public at this time, and he believes she may have known the person who killed her.

Public Safety asks anyone who was with Asbill Saturday to come forward with any information they may have about what she was doing that night.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 864-68-CRIME.
