— A Hope Mills woman who was found dead in some woods in December near her abandoned SUV had been strangled, according to an autopsy report released Friday.

The body of Edwardyne "Dynee" Williams, 50, was found in some woods off Canady Pond Road on Dec. 11. She was last seen on Nov. 27, and her abandoned SUV was found Dec. 4 along Chicken Foot Road, about 2 miles from her home.

Family members said her purse was found hanging on a nearby tree, and her house keys and cellphone were in the vehicle. The ignition key for the SUV was missing, they said.

Cumberland County deputies have gone door-to-door in the area and set up a checkpoint shortly after her body was found to generate leads in the investigation of her death.
