On Wednesday, November 5, police were called to the 1000 block of Bennett Loop, where the body was found, shortly after 5 p.m. Bennett Loop is off Airport Road in Loris.
Investigators said they believe the body might have been dumped near the abandoned property.
Sampson was a registered sex offender in Horry County, according to the Horry County sex offender database.
