Both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous at this time. If you have information leading to the arrest of either of these individuals, you are asked to call the Horry County Police Department at 915-TIPS.
Horry County Police found the body of the 21-year-old Myrtle Beach man Wednesday night at an abandoned area off Bennett Loop in Loris.
Horry County Police spokesman Lt. Robert Kegler confirmed the death is being investigated as a homicide. Horry County has had 25 homicides this year, according to the Coroner’s Office. Homicides in 2013 totaled 17.
Police were called to the 1000 block of Bennett Loop, where the body was found, around 5 p.m. Wednesday. Bennett Loop is off Airport Road in Loris.
Kegler said it appears the area where the victim was found is not where the shooting occurred. An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday, according to Hendrick.
Sampson is a registered sex offender in Horry County, convicted of two counts of solicitation of a minor in August 2014, according to the Horry County sex offender database. The victims are listed as 13- and 15-year-old girls.
In February of 2013, Sampson was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree, according to SLED records. In December 2013, Sampson was charged with several more offenses: third-degree criminal sexual conduct; contributing the delinquency of a minor; and second degree criminal sexual conduct.
When police searched his home in the Carolina Forest area in 2013, officers found a cellphone with a “selfie” photo of a topless girl, the report said. Sampson, police said, responded with an inappropriate picture. The girl told Sampson she was 15 in Facebook conversation in November 2013, the report said.
Sampson incurred two more charges — third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor; and disseminating obscene material to a person under 18 — related to a 16-year-old girl reporting that Sampson had raped her after giving her alcohol, according to SLED records.
The girl told police that between on Dec. 13 she met with Sampson after having an argument with her father and they went to Sampson’s apartment where he gave her something to drink and she became incapacitated, according to a police report.
The victim said she was unable to fight or stop Sampson, who had sex with her, the report said. The victim said when she did wake up, Sampson took her home and she then went to the hospital where police were called.
