OCONEE Co., SC (WSPA) – A man’s body was found at Stamp Creek Landing near Lake Keowee Friday afternoon, according to Oconee Co. Emergency Services.

Elmer C. Church, 54, of Westminister, was found at about 4 p.m. along the shoreline of Lake Keowee, according to Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis. 

Addis said it appeared that Church died late Friday afternoon.
