Elgin, SC (WLTX) - Kershaw County Coroner Johnny Fellers says a teen found dead earlier this week was strangled.
Fellers says 18-year-old Briana Rabon died from asphyxiation due to strangulation.
Rabon's body was found in a wooded area Wednesday afternoon. Investigators were able to identify her quickly because her driver's license was near her body. The woman's car was found at a Waffle House on Highway 601 near Interstate 20.
So far, no suspects have been arrested in connection with her killing. Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says his investigators are actively pursuing all leads.
Rabon was a 2013 graduate of Lugoff-Elgin High School. Her funeral is set for Sunday in Ridgeway.
