Police have identified the victim as 30-year-old Ashley O'Connor of Plano, Texas, who was vacationing in Ocean City with her parents. Several hours later, a beachgoer discovered the woman's body.

O'Connor's death was ruled an accident by the chief medical examiner in Baltimore, who found she died of asphyxia due to suffocation. It is still unknown if she climbed into the hole on her own or fell in before the sand caved around her, police said. Her body was removed at approximately 4:15 p.m. They also alerted the public of the ongoing investigation through their Facebook account.

A few users speculated her death could have been a homicide.

O'Connor recently got married and had started a painting business with her wife. Richard didn't know the exact depth of the hole, but said it was significant. State police crime scene technicians assisted Ocean City police's Forensics Services Unit.
