On Feb. 26, 2014, an 18-year-old girl was found dead behind Haig's Creek Subdivision in a wooded area. That lead detectives on a search for her killer, who had apparently strangled her. According to the Kershaw County Sheriff, an arrest has been made in the case. They aren't searching for any other suspects in the girl's death.
A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the violent crime. The sheriff said the man and girl were acquaintances, possibly from school. The man has a previous criminal history that includes jail time for receiving stolen goods. The stolen goods were from a burglary that included a stolen truck. The stolen truck was found in the same place where the young lady's body was found. He was also previously arrested for domestic violence, but that case is still pending.
