Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) - Kershaw County deputies are on the scene of a suspected murder in Elgin.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says the body of a 18 to 22-year-old woman was found off a dirt road near Haigs Creek North. Matthews say a group of children playing in that area made the discovery around 3:30 pm. Wednesday.

Matthews says they believe they know who the woman is, because they found identification that they believes belongs to her, but that more work needs to be done to identify her. He said at this point it's unclear when she may have died or where she was killed.

Matthews say he also believes they have recovered a vehicle that belonged to the victim.

He said if the victim is who he thinks it is, he knows she was with someone Tuesday night, but Matthews cautions it's too early in the investigation to make any speculations.
