Horry County police were called Wednesday to a house in the Conway area for a death investigation, after a call came in of a man lying in the yard of a home, authorities said.
Officers went to a house on Kimberly Drive, which is off S.C. 544 near Conway, for a deceased person, Lt. Raul Denis said. One person was taken into custody and Denis said the suspect would be named once formally charged.
Detectives continued to investigate the case and Denis said more information should be released later Wednesday.
Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said officials are searching for the person’s relatives and more information would be released when they have been contacted. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday morning to determine the person’s cause of death.
The victim is a 60-year-old white male originally from Texas, Denis said.
