ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities are investigating a suspicious death in Orangeburg County.

Investigators with the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office were called to a home off Joe Jeffords Highway on Monday where someone was found deceased inside a mobile home.

A concerned citizen called deputies around 1:50 p.m. when a coworker didn't answer his door.

"The citizen was there at the residence to give the individual a ride to work," OCSO officials said."The concerned citizen said it wasn't like the co-worker to be late or not answer his door at all."

When an OCSO deputy arrived, the deputy made entry into the home where the individual was found deceased on a floor.

"No cause of death has been determined at this point," OCSO officials said.

If anyone has any information on the incident, they are asked to call the OCSO at 803-534-3550.
