Human remains found near Henrietta St. in Greenville Co.


GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Human remains were found in a wooded area in Greenville County on Saturday.

According to the Greenville County Coroner, the remains found near Henrietta Street and East Park Avenue. This location is near the Greenville County Detention Center.

The coroner’s office said the remains appear to be of a white female.

The Greenville County Coroner, Greenville City Police and the Greenville City Fire Department all responded to the scene.

They spent hours clearing the area, looking for leads to this unsolved case.

Meanwhile, folks who believe the person was their loved one came to find answers.

Misty Reeder was at the scene Saturday and says if it’s her missing friend, she’ll be devastated.

She witnessed a lot from behind the scenes, and says, “They had a black jacket on, and Lisa was last seen with a black jacket on, so that’s worrisome.”

She says she’s praying for the best outcome.

“We’ve been out here for hours just waiting on some word for who this woman is and unfortunately we didn’t get that answer,” Reeder said. “But we’re going to remain hopeful until we run out of hope, until we’re told that was her.”

Adding, the next several hours, as they wait for the investigation to be finalized, are going to be torture for her and the family.

She said, “They said it would be a few days before the body is identified, but she was found in the ravine behind us.”

She’s asking the community to come together with law enforcement with any information to solve this mystery.

“Even if you feel like it’s something that’s not important, it possibly could be, so if so please call the law enforcement center and let them know,” Reeder said.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday, January 25.
