A man’s body has been found in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery off of South Fairfield Rd. and Paper Mill Rd. in Greenville Co., according to the coroner’s office.
They say 42-year-old Demetrius Lamon Jones died from a gunshot wound to the chest around 1 a.m.
The death is being investigated as a homicide.
Police say the 911 call came in around 10:30 a.m. when the body was discovered.
An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
Friends say Jones was a happy person and can’t understand why someone would want to kill him.
“No one deserves to take anyone’s life, because you can’t give a life back. I want whoever the killer or killers, whoever did this, to turn themselves in so the family can be at peace,” says Rickey Webb, Jones’ childhood friend.
Authorities have yet to make an arrest in the case as of Tuesday evening.
Investigators ask anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.
