Body found outside home in Cayce subdivision

Officers respond to an early morning call from the Hunters Mill subdivision.

CAYCE, S.C. — Cayce Police officers were out in force Tuesday morning in the Hunter Mills neighborhood after a body was found in the subdivision. 

Responding police officers and EMS did find a man's body outside of a home in the subdivision just off Emanuel Church Road, near Platt Springs Road, at approximately 7:15 a.m.

Cayce Police Chief Chris Cowan said the body was a male who lived at the home, and while it's unclear how he died, they don't believe the death is a homicide at this time. He said the coroner would have to identify the man. 

"At this point and time we're looking at all angles but we don't have any indication that this is a homicide at this point, but we have to make sure that we piece together everything, make sure we process everything purposefully, very clearly and concisely, to make sure that we don't leave any stone unturned, and make sure that we find out exactly what happened," Cowan said. 

Cowan did add that there's no indication anyone else was at the home when the death occurred. 

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is involved in the case, but Cayce Police believe there is no indication that there is a threat or danger to the community.

This is an ongoing investigation.
