Sumter, SC (WLTX) - Calling it a "high priority investigation," Sumter County authorities have formed a multi-agency task force to find the person who killed an 18-year-old Sumter High School Student.
The formation of the group was announced Tuesday, and it will be charged with finding the person responsible for the death of Aaron Abraham.
The task force combines the efforts of the Sumter Police Department, Sumter Sheriff's Office, Clarendon Sheriff's Office, and the Camden Police Department.
Abraham was found dead along SC 261 and Cane Savannah Road in the Wedgefield Community. He was last seen alive on July 19 at the Sumter County Library on North Harvin Street, a location 14 miles from where he was ultimately discovered.
According to officers, security footage from the library shows the teen leaving the building along around 6 p.m. and wearing a grey t-shirt.
Officers say Abraham was described by friends and family as easy-going and artistic.
Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis and Sumter Police Chief Russell Roark have also set up an Aaron Abraham Task Force Facebook page. They also have a dedicated task force hotline and an e-mail address for tips.
