Early Sunday morning a Turtle Patrol making its rounds in Flagler Beach located a woman in the surf. She was not breathing. She was pronounced dead at 7:22 a.m.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office today identified the woman as Patricia Darvish, 50, of 6 Princess Jeanette Place in Palm Coast. She was a long-time country resident. Foul play is not suspected.

There were no obvious signs of trauma on Darvish’s body. But Darvish was found clothed, strongly suggesting that she had walked into the surf, and that her death may have been a suicide. Police located her vehicle not far from where she was found, parked along A1A. She was found just north of North 23rd Street in Flagler Beach. (The vehicle was towed by Saxon’s towing.)

After the two members of the Turtle Patrol initially spotted Darvish, two other men, Doug Shore, Mark Dreyer and others, pulled her from the surf, and a Flagler Beach Police officer attempted to perform CPR on her.

Darvish’s body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s office in St. Augustine for an autopsy.

    Suicide? I certainly hope a more thorough investigation will be conducted before jumping to this conclusion. Perhaps interviews with friends and family to evaluate her state of mind. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Sad. I saw the police and CSI van there for hours.

    I am not buying the suicide story. Just a quick way to not have to investigate anything. Even if she accidentally drowned, that is NOT a suicide. It is hard for a family to deal with the fact that their loved one may have taken their own life so I am shocked they came to this conclusion so quickly.

    Wow what a quick conclusion I hope they investagate this more how can you say rite off the bat that she killed herself.

    Please don’t expect Jim Manfre to spend too many man hours on an unattended death investigation. I mean, for real guys, he has a campaign to run and his deputies are busy either fearing for their jobs or being his election minions!!

    This is so sad. I wish peace to the family (if there is any.)
