Greenville, SC - Mike Mecklenburg, a member of the city of Greenville's Design Review Board, was found shot to death early this morning, according to the Greenville County Coroner's Office.

Michael William Mecklenburg, 59, of 109 E. Earle Street, was found dead inside a vehicle at about 3:15 a.m. on Power Street from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds, Coroner Parks Evans said.
