Palm Coast’s Patricia Darvish, 50, Is Found in Flagler Beach Surf, an Apparent Suicide
FlaglerLive | May 9, 2016
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.
