CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – A woman whose body was found at the Padre Island National Seashore was from San Antonio, officials said.

The victim was identified as 59-year-old Julianne Elizabeth Shaw, said PINS education coordinator William "Buzz" Botts.

Shaw's body was discovered Saturday by a turtle patrol team on a part of the beach that was closed to vehicles about 2 miles north of the Malaquite Visitor Center, Botts said.

The victim's relatives saw news reports about the discovery and contacted the Kleberg County Sheriff's Department, Botts said.
