COLUMBIA — An 18-year-old woman was found dead Thursday afternoon beneath a cliff in Capen Park.
Columbia police late Thursday said there were no signs of foul play and that investigators were waiting for the medical examiner's office to provide autopsy results.
Police had not identified the woman by Thursday evening, but police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said next of kin had been notified.
The woman was discovered about 2 p.m. Thursday, police said.
Friends of the woman at the scene, just south of MU, identified her as Priscilla Guzman, a graduate of Rock Bridge High School.
Natalia Gould, who identified herself as a friend of Guzman, said Guzman was in the Marines and left base for a Wednesday night visit with a friend at MU.
Gould said she received a telephone call Wednesday night in which Guzman threatened to kill herself. But Guzman seemed happy at the end of their conversation, Gould said.
"She said she loved me and wanted to see me," Gould said.
*A candlelight vigil was scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday at Capen Park.
