ADAMS RUN, SC (WCSC) - Nine days after a woman’s body was found in Adam’s Run, deputies say they’re investigating one man’s “possible involvement.”

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office has officially ruled the death a homicide and have interviewed 30-year-old Ashante Green, according to sheriff’s office spokesman Roger Antonio.

“Detectives continue to investigate Green’s possible involvement in the homicide.” Antonio said.

On Friday, one of the victim’s family members identified her as Elizabeth Germany of Walterboro.

India Johnson said Germany started dating Green after she moved to the Lowcountry but had recently broken up with him.

Johnson said she was stunned to hear about the murder.

“It was just surreal and it was heartbreaking because she moved to South Carolina just for something different, the country life. She wanted to visit and she loved it, and she moved there," Johnson said.

Green has been arrested on unrelated outstanding warrants, but has not been charged with anything related to the murder, Antonio said.

Investigators had determined Germany was shot, but wouldn’t say how many times.

Her body was found near the 7500 block of Parkers Ferry Road in the morning hours of March 6 and jail records show Green was arrested later that same day and charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, reckless driving and possession of marijuana.
