DILLON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A man was found shot to death inside a home near Latta Tuesday morning and the Dillon County Sheriff's Office is treating the case as a homicide, Captain Cliff Arnette said.

Heath Clark, 44, was found murdered at a home on a property on Elberry Road where Dillon County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to around 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to Captain Arnette.

The Dillon County Coroner and the SLED Crime Scene Unit were also on scene throughout the day.

Captain Arnette said nobody has been arrested and no suspects have been identified yet. He said the sheriff's office is awaiting the cause of death results to direct the investigation.

It took six hours between the time law enforcement arrived on scene in the morning to when the body was transported from the property.

Friends stopped by throughout the day to support the family.

"I feel bad for him. It's sad," said Marshall Seals, a friend of the family. "I feel sorry for his daddy and all."
