SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

An incident report released Monday indicates the man found dead in his Summerville home Friday was set to become a father.

According to the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, the girlfriend of 38-year-old Johnny Young Jr. discovered she was pregnant on Thursday, one day before he was killed.

The woman said she and Young were planning to get married.

Young was found dead in his Hope Drive home on Friday, when a neighbor came to visit and found the body inside.

"I was just feeling shocked and my gosh what happened just terror," said neighbor Shanna Harbison.

Harbison did not find the body, but said she knew the man that lived there.

"He's very nice. Every time I would leave the house to go out somewhere, he would always be in his front yard saying 'Hi and How are you,'" Harbison said.

No arrests have been made.
