MODOC, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a white female in Edgefield County.

Deputies said Sunday they are investigating it as a homicide and a suspect is in custody, but could not release a name at this time.

Next of kin for the deceased have been notified and the identity will be released Monday morning.

Law enforcement had the road blocked off Sunday at Red Oak Grove Road and Highway 23 a couple of miles west of Modoc and just inside Edgefield County. That’s where a passerby reported a body off the side of the road.
