Effingham County Coroner's authorities are saying the Sunday death of a local woman was due to natural causes.

A Coroner's Office representative responded to an apartment complex in Effingham early Sunday morning at the request of emergency medical personnel.  The resident of the apartment, 72-year-old Barbara Brauer, was found unresponsive in the residence and pronounced dead by the coroner's office representative.

The initial investigation indicated that Brauer died of natural causes and no foul play is suspected.  The investigation continues by the Coroner's Office.
