A 26-year-old Staten Island woman was found dead today with a blow-dryer cord around her neck, police said.

According to reports, Caroline Wimmer was discovered face down by her parents with a hair dryer beside her beside noon in her West Brighton apartment.

An autopsy will reportedly be performed today on Wimmer, who was last heard from on Saturday.

There were no signs of forced entry at her home, on 196 Greenleaf Avenue, reports said.

A man who was identified as her father told the Staten Island Advance that his daughter was a very giving woman.

“She would give you the clothes off her back, and this is what happens," he told the paper.

Wimmer last logged into her MySpace page on Friday, but a sadly ironic quote remained next to her photo today:

"I will survive whatever life has to throw at me, I am ready and stronger than ever. Nothing or nobody will hold me back.”
