SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) -
Several law enforcement agencies have formed a multi-jurisdictional task force in an
extensive effort to apprehend the person or persons responsible for killing 18-year-old
Sumter High School senior Aaron Abraham.
Sumter Police Chief Russell Roark and Sumter
County Sheriff Anthony Dennis said the State Law Enforcement Division,
Clarendon County Sheriff's Office, and Camden Police Department are working with
their agencies in the investigation.
A man collecting cans found Abraham's remains along South Carolina 261 near Cane Savannah Road in the Wedgefield area of Sumter County on August 22.
Abraham was last seen alive on July 19 about 14 miles away at the Sumter County library on North Harvin Street. Security footage from
the library shows the teen leaving the library alone around 6:00 p.m. He was wearing a
Authorities do not know what happened to Abraham between the time he was seen at the library and when his remains were found over a month later.
Abraham's mother, Patricia, said the library was his favorite summer hangout. He'd walk over to play games, watch movies, and surf the web.
Early in the morning on July 19, Aaron left the house to do just that, Patricia says.
Around 6 p.m., security video captured Aaron leaving the library, but he did not return home.
At first, Patricia thought the 18-year-old just stayed the night with a friend.
"When he didn't call me, didn't come home and
change clothes, didn't take the video tapes back or take the library
stuff back, I knew something was wrong," Patricia said.
Investigators suspect someone intentionally hurt Aaron, but they don't
know if it was random or targeted.
The teen's death leaves Aaron's mother wondering what
his future would have been. His goal was to enlist in the military after school.
A dedicated e-mail and task force hotline, which
is capable of receiving text messages as well as phone calls related to the
investigation, have been established. Tips and information can be e-mailed
to firstname.lastname@example.org or phoned or texted to 803-607-8927. The Crimestoppers hotline (1-888-CRIME-SC) is also available.
A Facebook page has also been set up to keep the public informed about the case. Click here to visit the page: http://fb.me/1AkloQOa9
