ROCK HILL A Rock Hill woman is dead after authorities say she drowned in a private pool Saturday evening.

Officials received about a woman dead in a pool on Lake Wylie Drive, which borders the lake at Ebenezer Park, at about 11 p.m., said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

Tonya McRorie, 44, was pronounced dead on the scene, Gast said. She lived at 3587 Mt. Gallant Road.

Other people were using the pool Saturday night, Gast said, adding that the homeowner was not home at the time.

The York County Sheriff's Office is also investigating.

Gast said an autopsy on McRorie will not be performed until Monday.
