ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Deputies are investigating the stabbing death of an Orangeburg man.

"People don't want to work," said Orangeburg resident Deloris Kitt. "They want to rob, steal and kill."

Kitt has lived in Orangeburg for 30 years. Kitt's neighbor, 47-year-old William Black -- a man she says would play in the yard with her granddaughter and drove an ice cream truck -- was stabbed in the back over the weekend. "I was wondering what happened to him, we hadn't seen him," said Kill. "I told my friend 'I don't know what happened to him.'"

She wasn't the only one with questions after Black's landlord started wondering what was going on. He said he hadn't heard from Black in about a week so he showed up and knocked on his door. He said he smelled something and then know something was terribly wrong.

Black's home is a few miles up the road from Bowman, where deputies say 31-year old Deshon Potts of Columbia was shot Sunday morning outside a nightclub. Now the search is on for the man investigators think killed him, 28-year-old Rodney Neals.

Three other suspicious deaths have been reported since Friday in Orangeburg County. A 47-year-old grandmother was found unconscious Saturday along a dirt road near the city of Orangeburg, she later died at Palmetto Health Richland.

Another man died after being shot in Holly Hill. He is identified as 33-year-old James Robinson.

Deputies say despite the timing of the deaths and the geography, none are linked. If you know anything about any of these incidents, you're urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
