BEREA, Ky. (AP) - An investigation is underway after a South Carolina woman was found unresponsive inside a church in Berea.

Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison tells news outlets that 33-year-old Lindsay Poole of Anderson, South Carolina, was pronounced dead Saturday after being taken to a hospital from the Oklevueha Native American Church of the Peaceful Mountain Way.

Berea police spokesman Lt. Jake Reed says authorities were called to the church that night. Cornelison says investigators were told the woman had fallen.

Investigators have not said what caused the death.

Cornelison says they are awaiting autopsy results.

The church’s website says the group offers ceremonies for members to “explore their inner consciousness.”

No further details have been released.
