Pickens County death under investigation

An autopsy has been ordered on the body of a male found early today in Pickens County, at the entrance to the Upper State Fairgrounds.  According to the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office, the autopsy is part of an investigation into the death which early information indicates no obvious signs of foul play.  The sheriff’s office did not identify the deceased by name, but is referring inquiries to the county coroner’s office.  A passerby this morning noticed an unresponsive male, which led to the investigation.
