'It Still Hurts Just The Same', Family of Bethune Murder Victim Still Seeks Answers

It's been one year since Adam Davis' body was found in a shallow grave in Lee County.

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) -- The investigation into a Kershaw County man's death continues.

It's been one year since Adam Davis' body was found in a shallow grave in Lee County.

"We feel basically the same as we did a year ago. We just have closure now," said Davis' sister, Heather Kelly.

It's been one year without her brother. One year without answers.

"It doesn't get easier. You just learn how to deal with it better," she said.

Kelly said she still hasn't been able to grieve the loss of her younger brother.

"You still think he may walk through the front door any minute, but you know it's not going to happen. You just learn to deal with it a little better. It still hurts just the same, but it's just learning to deal with it," she said.

Davis went missing back in December 2016, after his family said he was last seen at a friend's house in Bethune. In March of last year, authorities received an anonymous tip with coordinates, which led them to Davis' body in a shallow grave in Lee County.

"The Sheriff's Department is working, we know they're working. We have confidence in them," said Kelly.

While she wishes there would be more answers for her family, Kelly has hope that those responsible for her brother's death will be brought to justice.

"It's a pain to wait, but we're okay waiting as long as they're working. We would rather wait it out and it be just right, then they do something hastily, and it not pan out the way we want it to pan out," she said.

Since receiving the GPS coordinates in the form of an anonymous letter, the Kershaw County Sheriff's Department has been actively investigating. They have received a number of leads, but no arrests have been made.

Davis' family will be holding a remembrance celebration Saturday evening. It will be held at 4pm at the park in Bethune.
