HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County Police confirm that Marion Javon Campbell, the man wanted for murder of a cab driver in the Conway area on June 26, may be hiding in the Tampa, Florida area. 

Campbell, 23, was identified as the suspect in a Facebook posted by the HCPD on the morning of Wednesday, June 28. He is described by police as a 6-foot-2-inch tall black male, and 220 pounds in weight. His nicknames include "Boogolio" and "Heartless." Police warn that he should not be approached.

HCPD Spokeswoman Krystal Dotson said that the taxi cab driver found with gunshot wounds in his cab in the area of Juniper Bay and Dunn Short Cut roads. 

According to Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler, the man died at the Conway Medical Center emergency room. The victim has been identified as Dennis Mantel, 66, of Myrtle Beach. He died from a single gunshot wound. 

An incident report from the Horry County Police Department states the taxi cab crashed into a home on Juniper Bay Road.
