COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Colleton County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man wanted for the murder of a woman.

Deputies are looking for 25-year-old Damon Anderson of Walterboro who they say was last known to be in the Charleston area. CCSO officials said they have received information that Anderson may be in Tennessee.

Investigators describe Anderson as 5′8″ and 150 pounds. He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call (843) 549-2211.

The investigation started when deputies found a woman dead inside a home on the 4500 block of Can City Road. A report states that a man initially called 911 saying that the woman stabbed herself in the chest.

Investigators reported that the unidentified caller is believed to be Anderson, the woman’s boyfriend. Colleton County Fire-Rescue said the woman appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound and had no signs of life. The sheriff’s office called in the State Law Enforcement Division to help with the investigation.
