GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Authorities were called to the scene of a death in Greer on Thursday.

The Greer Police Department said officers received reports of a deceased female on Jones Avenue around 5 p.m. The victim was located outside.

The Greenville County Coroner's Office confirmed a coroner was dispatched to the scene. Coroner Kent Dill said the investigation is in its early stages and they do not know whether the death is natural or suspicious.

A FOX Carolina crew at the scene said a home was taped off with police, forensics and firefighters assisting.

Dill said that at this point, he hasn't observed anything about the death to make him believe it's suspicious. He cannot officially rule out a suspicious death until the autopsy tomorrow, however.

Lt. Jimmy Holcombe with the Greer Police Department also said the death appeared to be natural.
